Food Friday on Empty Streets: Tuna Sandwich

Posted 8:46 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: , , ,
Since am on a very strict diet as I am trying to loose weight, I have been cutting down on carbs and one way is to prepare delicious Tuna Sandwiches. Not only is this recipe very healthy for the heart, but it is also a piece of cake to make :)

Here is how:


* 1 (6 ounce) can of tuna fish (if packed in water, drain it, and add a teaspoon of good quality olive oil)
* 1/3 cup of cottage cheese
* 2 Tablespoons of mayonaise
* 1/4 purple onion, chopped finely
* 1 celery stalk, chopped finely
* 1 Tablespoon of capers
* Juice of half of a lemon
* Pinch or two of dill
* 2 Tbsp minced fresh parsley
* 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
* (optional - lettuce and sliced tomatoes)
* Slices of French bread, lightly toasted


Mix all of the ingredients.

Serve on toast, either open faced, or in a regular sandwich with lettuce and tomatoes.

For a low carb option, serve on sliced lettuce.

Here is a cool video variation on how to make this delightfully healthy and tasty treat:

Hi there,
While I am delighted that you like my recipe well enough to write about it on your own site, I would appreciate that if you do so you 1) provide a working link back to the source recipe on my site ( and that 2) you write the recipe in your own words.
Thank you so much for your consideration.
