Looking for a twist on typical tuna salad? I love adding yogurt in place of mayonnaise in things like tuna salad. My version uses yogurt, herbs, and celery to create flavor and crunch without all the added fat and calories from mayonnaise. This basic Yogurt Tuna Salad recipe also works well with salmon, chicken, or hard boiled eggs. Take your lunch up a notch, your belly will thank you.
