Tuna salad has been a favorite of mine from when I was young – I loved whipping up a batch to eat with crackers!  I used to eat canned tuna mixed with sweet relish and mayo, but I wanted to make a healthier grown-up version of this classic recipe.

By adding the Greek yogurt, you get a high protein tuna salad that tastes amazing. The Greek yogurt replaces mayonnaise in this dish, and gives the tuna salad a creamy and tangy flavor.
