Lighter tuna salad

This is a go to lunch for me, especially when I'm planning a more indulgent dinner. I was inspired by one of my favorite deli sandwiches, but this version is more vibrant. The lemon punches it up and herbs give it a zing of freshness.

Lighter tuna salad


1 can water packed tuna (my favorite brand is wild planet), drained

2 celery stalks, diced

3 or so banana peppers, diced

1 small shallot, finely chopped

A few sprigs of dill (to taste, a little goes a long way) Chives or parsley work if dill is not your jam

1.5 tbsp nonfat Greek yogurt

1 tsp Dijon mustard

Juice from half of a lemon

Romaine lettuce, for serving


Mix all the ingredients (except the lettuce) in a bowl, mashing the tuna with the tines of your fork to break it up a little. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pile onto lettuce cups and enjoy!
