Low calorie tuna salad sandwiches

9 Nov

This is your basic tuna sandwich, with a few substitutions to bring down the calorie count and up the flavor. My memories of tuna sandwiches are based on a slightly sweet variety of tuna salad, which is what this recipe is based on. It tastes just like my Granny’s and my Moms. If you prefer a more savory version, you can sub fat free mayo and dill relish for great results and about 5 calories less per serving.


  • 2 (5 oz) cans of chunk light or white tuna in water
  • 3 tablespoons fat free miracle whip
  • 2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
  • 2 tablespoons of onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of celery, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 egg, hard boiled and chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


1. Drain tuna and mix in a bowl with all other ingredients.

editors Note: Serve with 2 slices of 35 calorie bread for a 140 calorie sandwich!

Makes 4 servings.
