I eat tuna everyday. I often just upend the can over a garden salad, and squirt a little Italian FF dressing over it. But other days I get more creative and some of my fave recipes are:

Open faced tuna melt

1 can of tuna
1 tsp mustard (any kind will do)
1 tsp pickle relish
1 tsp ff ranch dressing
1.5 oz rf cheese (I usually use colby-jack)
2 slices of toasted 35 calorie/slice bread or crispbread

Stir together tuna and condiments, spread onto toast or crispbread, top with cheese and broil for 2-3 minutes until cheese melts. You can sprinkle a few onions or diced tomato on the top of the cheese, but that's optional


Stuffed Tomato

1 can tuna mixed with 2T FF ranch dressing (or whatever you like on your tuna salad)

I usually core and quarter the tomato, but don't cut all the way through, then spread the quarters out, scoop the tuna on top of the tomato and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and paprika.


Tuna Deviled Eggs

Instead of using the yolks for the stuffing on a deviled egg, use tuna salad.


Tuna and Avocado Wraps

1 avocado, pealed, pitted and sliced
2 oz fat free or rf cream cheese
2T pickle relish
1 can tuna
shredded lettuce and/or alfalfa sprouts
2-3 low fat, low cal, whole grain tortillas
sliced black olives

Stir together the tuna and pickle relish. Spread a thin layer of softened cream cheese on a tortilla, then spread a layer of the tuna-relish mixture, then top with avocado, olives and leafy greens, wrap, slice on a diagonal, and enjoy. For a little more kick add hot banana pepper slices.
