Make Tuna Salad With Hummus Instead of Mayo

Healthier Tuna Salad: Hummus Instead of Mayo

I grew up eating tuna salad sandwiches, but when I got older, I stopped eating them since they're made with mayo, and not exactly the healthiest lunch option. Then a friend turned me on to this idea: replace the mayo with hummus. Brilliant! It adds a creamy texture and tangy flavor, with much less calories, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

See how much healthier hummus is than mayo? You can also pump up the flavor of your tuna salad even more by adding a little Dijon mustard, fresh herbs, and chopped scallions. It won't taste exactly like the tuna salad you know and love, but it's still really delicious, and you'll feel good knowing it's much healthier for you.
