I'm not a big fan of tuna, and I hate mayo and anything mayo-like

    I decided to try mixing some low-fat creamy cesar dressing in to some white tuna with fresh asiago cheese. The flavor got to be a bit too much, but it wasn't bad all that bad.

    you do realize that that "fat free I can't believe it's not butter spray" is actually not fat free and partially hydrogenated, don't you?

    Man. I got it. Here's what I do.

    Spoon. Can of tuna. Glass of milk.

    Ur set.

    Its nasty as ever, but u eat the tuna out of the can, wash it down with some milk, and you got a high protein and healthy snack! Then I usually have some broccoli with it too!!


    I know. I'm genius.

    Try a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and a bit of balsamic vinegar.

    Use low fat Miracle whip with Tuna or Salmon and a bit of lemon or lime juice. Don't like fat free salad dressing or mayo they are not very tasty.

    Men's Health had a recipe for tuna salad using tuna (of course), green apples, NF yogurt, balsamic vinegar, and a few other things that is low-fat and pretty tasty. I bet if you do a search on their site you can find it.

    Tuna with fat free or low fat yogurt, either plain or vanilla, and some onions and celery.

    Or, with mustard or honey mustard.

    Or better yet, making a sandwich with hummus spread on the bread and the tuna in the middle, delicious.

    And then the ultimate tuna salad.

    1 can of tuna, drained
    Lettuce or cabbage, chopped, 1/4 of a head
    1/2 tomato, diced
    1/2 onion, diced
    1 pickle, diced
    2 limes

    Throw everything together in a large plastic container, mixing everything well, then squeeze the limes on top. Toss again and seal container. Chill for about 2 hours. Eat on its own, or served with crackers, pita bread, pita chips, whatever.

    there is low fat mayo.

    but if you're paranoid about calories, then go with cottage cheese, or even guacamole

    I like it without mayo and dry, but I am weird. I have also put in unflavored greek yogurt.

    Why not the full fat? Less Sugar and it tastes better.

    Myself I just mix mayo, diced pickles, and a few slices of cheese, and throw it in the oven for 10 minutes...The pickles give a nice crunch and taste icon_biggrin.gif

    I hate mayo, it tastes like hooker crotch. So I substitute avocado. Add some scallions, tomato, and half a jalapeno and you can die happy.

    You have my sympathies Timberoo, I really have to struggle to find food I don't like. Cooked spinach, liver and I think that is it. Same with alcohol, I hate scotch whiskey, vermouth and I can't think of any others!

    I am not going to respond to MZ's comparison of Mayo to hooker crotch (although I am curious how he would know what the latter tastes like).

    if you're against mayo, why not try sour cream.. i use it in my chicken salad instead of mayo.
