Lightened up Tuna Salad Sandwich

A couple of simple changes and tuna salad gets a fresh new taste and drops some unnecessary calories.  I personally prefer this to the full fat version, and as always, play around and use what dressings and veggies work for you.

Makes 3 sandwiches

1 small can tuna in water
1 stalk celery, diced
3 green onions, sliced
1 healthy spoonful  mayo - if you have a blender or food processor it's easy to make your own mayonnaise
Kraft light balsamic vinaigrette parmesan asiago dressing*
3 100 calorie sandwich thins (we used Orrowheat multi grain since they were on sale b1g1) Greens of choice - we used an organic baby spring mix, about half was spinach
1 large ripe tomato, sliced

Drain tuna and flake in small bowl, add celery and onion then put in a generous spoon of mayo and mix.  Add salad dressing to taste.  Divide evenly among the bottom half of 3 sandwich thins, add greens and tomato then top with other half of sandwich thin. 

Enjoy.

*If you are not a fan of balsamic vinegar, any vinaigrette or oil/vinegar type dressing you like, or even straight up red wine vinegar is good.  Here are some myo vinaigrettes, I am sure you'll find at least one that you'll love.

Minnesota's acquisition of Sam new nike nfl jerseys Bradford NFL Jerseys for a first-round pick in 2017 and a fourth-round Denver Broncos Jerseys pick in 2018 isn't the kind jerseys store of move we're used to seeing on NFL's cheap sale jerseys annual roster cutdown day to 53 players. Two teams dramatically changed course for the season just days before it is set to begin. The Vikings are trying to jump through a Super Bowl window, wholesale jerseys shop while the Eagles chose to happily take a ride on the Carson Wentz Carolina Panthers Jerseys rookie quarterback rollercoaster.
