Mediterranean Tuna Salad
Tuna salad is a perennial favorite, but it can be loaded with fat thanks to its typically creamy binders. Follow these swaps for less fat and calories.
Keep sodium levels in check by adding ingredients that are briny and tangy, like olives, capers, and lemon juice, rather than adding salt.
Whisk together mayonnaise and lemon juice.
Toss together tuna, scallions, bell pepper, and olives in a large bowl; mix in mayonnaise mixture until incorporated.
Divide tuna salad evenly over servings of salad greens.
To create a creamy binder with Mediterranean flavor, enhance olive oil mayo with fresh lemon juice.
Add flavor while keeping sodium levels in check by mixing in briny olives instead of seasoning with salt.
