Healthy Tuna Sandwich Recipe

Have you ever tried a healthy tuna sandwich? I have, and it's pretty good to try if you’re trying to go on a diet or lose weight and still eat tuna if it’s your favorite thing to eat. With this healthy tuna sandwich, you can add other healthy ingredients with the tuna before making the sandwich.

The following basic Betty Crocker recipe is healthy because it features fresh vegetables and tuna canned in water rather than oil.


  • 2 cans (6 oz. each) tuna in water

  • 1 medium stalk celery

  • 1 small onion

  • ½ cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  • 8 slices bread


  • Drain the tuna in a strainer in the sink. Chop the celery to measure 1/2 cup. Peel and chop the onion to measure

1/4 cup.

  • In a medium bowl, mix the tuna, celery, onion, mayonnaise, and lemon juice, salt and pepper.

  • Spread tuna mixture on 4 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices.

Other meats you can use besides tuna are grilled chicken, roast beef, turkey, and more. if you want to take a creative twist on the classic, try the following recipe from www.bettycrocker.com
