One day I realized that I had a large tub of Greek yogurt that was about to go bad. So I thought tuna salad would be a great way to use it up, instead of having a plain yogurt party. Once I discovered this combination, I decided to never go back to the mayo again. (I attempt to substitute yogurt for many things, even for the milk in Annie’s Mac n’ Cheese)
People often think that tuna salad is a healthier alternative when eating at places like Subway. A plain tuna salad on wheat is 24 big Gs of fat at Subway. Let’s not talk about how much in a footlong with cheese (okay, over 90 Gs). Cutting out the mayonnaise is good. Yogurt is better. Olives are anti-inflammatory. Tuna is Omega3. Red Onion helps libido and makes you cry. So I got thinking Greek.
Variation: Make the Greek yogurt into a tzatziki sauce!
