A delicious tuna salad made with yogurt instead of mayonnaise, with chick peas and fresh parsley. Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Strain yogurt in a yogurt strainer or coffee filter for 30 minutes to one hour to remove some of the excess moisture.
  2. Whisk together yogurt, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and cumin in a bowl.
  3. Stir in tuna, chickpeas and parsley and season with salt and pepper.

I made this recipe exactly as described, and served it over pasta; it was absolutely delicious! However, I thought that it called for way too much yogurt - next time I'll cut the yogurt/tahini mixture in half. Thanks!
