Curry & Parmesan Tuna Salad
I brought together all of my favorite things to make the best tuna salad sandwich ever!
A new twist on the classic tuna salad sandwich, this recipe adds curry and parmesan for a sandwich you're going to love.
5 oz tuna in waterdrained
5 T mayonnaisereduced-fat
1 T grated parmesan cheese
2 T sweet pickle relish
1 tsp spicy brown mustard
1 T dried parsley
1 tsp dried dill weed
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/8 tsp garlic powder
Tuna can be one of the most healthy foods to eat, however restaurants and fast food joints have destroyed the tuna salad sandwich by loading it with unnecessary fat and calories. Did you know that a 6″ Tuna sub from Subway has 450+ calories and 25+ grams of fat?! Ouch.. stay away from that one.
I absolutely LOVE tuna salad sandwiches so when I came up with this recipe, I spent a lot of time until I got it just right. Don’t be frightened by the curry in this recipe. There’s only a tiny amount to give it a hint of that delicious curry flavor.
And how cool is it that this recipe was published! If you check out the Aug/Sept 2011 issue of Healthy Cooking magazine and turn to page 51, you’ll see my recipe for Curry & Parmesan Tuna Salad. This recipe is also featured on the Taste of Home website under “40 Lettuce Recipes You Can Get Excited About” and “Top 10 Tuna Salad Recipes, Just Like Grandma Made”. How amazing is that?
You can eat the entire bowl of tuna salad for less than 350 calories! Each serving is around 115 calories and 6.5 grams of fat.
You may also use chunk light tuna, but depending on the brand, it may add more calories. The same goes with the light mayo. Always read the labels.
