Everything Tuna

Crunchy, chewy, tangy, sweet — this tuna's got everything going for it. It's a great topping for a grain bowl, but it's also great on salad, in a sandwich or wrap, or scooped up with whole-grain crackers.

Ingredients

2 (5-ounce) cans tuna packed in water
3 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 apple, washed, cored, and chopped
1⁄4 cup raisins
1⁄4 cup chopped toasted walnuts, pecans, or almonds
1 carrot, well scrubbed or peeled, grated

Instructions

Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your equipment and ingredients and put them on a counter.

  1. Drain the tuna: Set the colander in the sink, then use the can opener to open each can and carefully empty the tuna into the colander. Using the fork, press down on the tuna to squeze the liquid out. Allow it to drain away.
  2. Put the drained tuna in the bowl and break up any clumps with the fork.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  4. Cover and, if you can, refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to overnight to let the flavors mingle. 
  • "Cored" means with the stem and hard center part removed.
  • To toast the nuts, put them on a small baking sheet in a 350-degree oven until they are fragrant and look a shade darker, about 5-10 minutes.
