Weight Watchers Tuna Salad
For years, tuna has been a popular diet food, and with good reason. Tuna is low in calories while high in filling protein. It’s also inexpensive and easy to use since you can keep a few cans of tuna on hand. Our family loves this Weight Watchers Tuna Salad Recipe!
I like to make a large batch of this tuna salad during my weekend meal prep and enjoy it for my lunches during the week. Since this Weight Watchers Tuna Salad recipe is zero points on Blue and Purple and low points on Green, you will have plenty of points left over for breakfast, dinner, and snacks.
This recipe has an optional 2 T of light mayo or Miracle whip. While this technically has points, when spread over the whole recipe the calculation is still zero. I like to wait and add just a bit at serving since I really like the tangy zip and don’t want it to get lost in the tartness of the Greek yogurt.
