Skinny Tuna Spread

July 11, 2012 7 Comments

When my boyfriend Solal is in charge of the dinner, he often makes us what he calls “assorted plates”, which is actually a assortment of bites of any kinds. Depending on what could be found in the fridge, you’ll get stuffed vine leaves, crudités, cheese, deli meat or…tuna spread on toasted bred! Those dinners are simple but I love them.

Skinny Tuna Spread

Tuna spread is a classic, but what a yummy one! To keep it light, but still tasty, I sub mayo with fat free greek yogurt, and use some dijon-style mustard. Then I add chopped red onion and pickles, and here you go for a delicious and creamy tuna spread! At the end, it’s only 141 cal and 3 WW Pts+ for a large portion!

This is a perfect spread for a quick and refreshing sandwich. But you can also serve it on cucumber slices, to keep low in carbs; or with baked pita chips as a dip. This makes a perfect appetizer served on small toasted bread slices.

  1. I sometimes make very similar paste, but I also add a boiled egg, chopped into a very small pieces.
    I recommend also to use pickles with chilli, they are more spicy and have different, interesting taste.

    Regards 🙂

    1. That sounds delicious! I’ve never tried with chili pickles but I often add some hot pepper paste. It’s the perfect way to give the spread a little kick, I love it!
