This super tasty, healthy tuna salad is great on crackers, on bread for a sandwich, stuffed in a hallowed out fresh tomato, in a pita with some veggies, or any other way you can think of!
- 6 ounces tuna in water, drained
- 1 cup fat-free cottage cheese
- 1⁄4 cup diced onion
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 tablespoons original Mrs. Dash seasoning mix
- salt & pepper
- Combine all ingredients with a fork. Eat or chill to let flavors set up even better!
This was very easy to prepare, made it for a quick lunch. I went light on the Mrs. Dash only used 1 tablespoon and it was plenty spicey. I also served it with tomatoes as it just needed something more. But an all around good recipe.
Really tasty! I'm slightly embarrassed to admit it but if I worked out and am starving I can eat a whole can of tuna, but not this kind - half a can is very filling and you don't miss the mayo. Just a word of caution if you don't have Mrs. Dash, which I didn't...I substituted another seasoning blend and even without adding salt and pepper it was way too salty. I would start with 2 tsp. to 1 T of any seasoning with salt in it.
mmm, i always make tuna salad with cottage cheese now instead of mayonnaise. Sometimes i add relish or pickles as well.
