Weight Watchers Recipe: Tuna Salad on Whole Wheat

POINTS® Value: 6 Servings: 4 Preparation Time: 7 min Cooking Time: 0 min Level of Difficulty: Easy We revamped this classic and it’s better than ever. The secret’s in the mincing of the vegetables and flaking of the tuna. Ingredients 8 slice(s) Weight Watchers 100% Whole Wheat Bread, or other brand 12 oz canned chunk white tuna in water, drained 1/3 cup(s) onion(s), finely minced (sweet onions recommended) 1/3 cup(s) celery, finely minced 1/3 cup(s) reduced-calorie mayonnaise 1 large tomato(es), thinly sliced 1 cup(s) lettuce, baby leaves Instructions Place tuna in a mixing bowl and flake with a fork until very fine. Add onions, celery and mayonnaise; mix well. Top a slice of bread with a heaping 1/3 cup of tuna, 1/4 of tomato slices and 1/4 cup of lettuce; top with another slice of bread. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Yields 1 sandwich per serving. Notes You can change this basic tuna recipe by stirring in 1 teaspoon of curry powder, 1 tablespoon of fresh dill or 1/2 teaspoon of chopped capers.
