Number of Servings: 2



1 can albacore tuna

2/3 cup non-fat cottage cheese

4 tablespoons plain lowfat yogurt

1/4 small red onion, chopped finely

1 stalk celery, chopped finely

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

splash of lemon juice

pinch or two of dill*

*To change up the flavor, swap the dill for tarragon or thyme.


Just throw all ingredients into a bowl and give it a good mix. Enjoy!
