Healthy Tuna Salad

Here's is a healthier version of tuna salad for your next tuna sandwich! Instead of mayo, I use plain greek yogurt and olive oil to give a similar taste with much less calories. For this recipe, I used 2  3-ounce cans of albacore tuna in water. I find it has a fresher, lighter taste. 

6 ounces tuna
3 tbsp 0% fat plain greek yogurt
1 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 to 1/2 tsp chopped garlic (to taste)
1 tsp lemon juice
Option- 1 boiled and chopped egg

Combine all ingredients and mix. Chopped tomato and / or chopped avocado are great additions to this recipe. Serve with fresh bread or toast. Enjoy!
***0% greek yogurt has about 8 calories per tablespoon compared to regular mayo which has 100 calories per tablespoon. By also adding the olive oil, you get a similar taste to mayo with only adding 40 calories per teaspoon.
