Perfect Tuna Salad

I was a little nervous to post this. Photographing tuna is not an easy task, but I love this recipe enough that I knew I just had to share it with all of you. It’s my semi healthy version of a classic. This is the perfect tuna salad. Which is great when you are in the need for a quick filling meal. Pack it in your kids lunch boxes, take it out on a picnic, or just enjoy it at home.

Did you know that Greek yogurt is a super simple substitution for mayo? Me either. Until now. Apparently you can even use it in baking! Try it out. You can thank me later. Some people like to add cashews or grapes, but I’m a plain Jane kind of girl. The celery and onion add enough crunch all on their own, and the addition of lemon gives it a fun citrus flavor. Perfect summer dish!

I started using Plain Greek yogurt And realized, I no longer needed Sour Cream, and mayonaise. Greek Yogurt goes into my smoothies, On my Cuban Black Bean soup, tacos, Baked potatoes, it is so yummy.
