Gourmet Tuna Salad

Tuna salad is an easy and tasty dish to make that isn’t always thought of as a comfort food. It is versatile and full of flavor. If you think you might not like tuna salad, I encourage you to give it a second chance. For this recipe, I use yogurt to reduce some of the fat and calories. You can omit and use all mayo if you prefer. Eat the salad as a tossed green salad topping, on a sandwich, with crackers or veggies, or serve them as a pretty party spread; ideas shown in the post. You can also prepare a beautiful double decker sandwich that is sure to impress. Mmm, mmm, good!
