Ohh how I miss my kitchen! I’ve been so preoccupied with the conference and the baby I barely have time to eat let alone experiment. You could probably tell by my lack of new ideas recently.

*sigh* I’m not going to bore you with my whining. Let me get to this new tasty sandwich I made today!

I needed something quick but I didn’t want to sacrifice taste, or better yet, satisfaction. I don’t know about you but when I just grab something out of the pantry, like a granola bar or some crackers, I’m just not SATISFIED even though I’m no longer hungry. The Simplest, Lightest, Easiest Tuna Salad Ever!

The funny thing is, this salad is probably lighter then anything I would grab fast. But the fact that I pause, cut a few veggies, make the sandwich, add a side of carrot sticks and sit down at the table to eat it makes all the difference.

Here’s how I did it. This took all of about 3 minutes.

Prepare all the ingredients.

The Simplest, Lightest, Easiest Tuna Salad Ever! - step 1

Mix The Laughing Cow Light wedge with the tuna.

The Simplest, Lightest, Easiest Tuna Salad Ever! - step 2

    Yummy …. I do tuna alot … I make mine with apple, celery, onion and alittle mayo … oh so good on a Flatout or on mixed greens…

  2. Natalia

    Wow what a great idea! I’ve just recently started eating laughing cow cheese and it’s awesome! Love it in place of mayo, it’s so flavorful!

  3. Lorie H.

    I love the idea of using the laughing cow cheese instead of mayo. I love tuna but never know what to put with it. Great idea!

  4. Eileen

    oh I like! It was suggested to me to use cottage cheese instead of mayo/miracle whip but I could get on that train. This…I like :)

  5. D

    Mmmmm, I’ve been craving tuna salad – can’t have mayo though, so this looks great! Dinner for me! :) Thanks!

    Love, love this idea!
    I haven’t been eating tuna salad because I didn’t want to use mayo, but now I can use my new obsession — laughing cow cheese?….genius!!
    I have been losing weight but oh so slowly, so my ww pal and I have challenged each other to cut way down on bread, which we think may be slowing us down. I will have this tuna salad on one slice of bread : D Or hey, about a lettuce wrap? Yummy!!

    This recipe sounds fantastic! I have a hard time with portions so I just want to double check. Is this meant to be a serving for 1? Thanks!

    OK Roni, I have to confess. I almost skipped reading this post. I *do not* like “salads” (ham, potato, macaroni, etc.) because I don’t like mayo. So I thought…”eh, what’s the point?” But, then I remembered that Roni is a crafty one…and comes up with some very unconventional and delicious recipes! To my UTTER delight and surprise, this tuna salad has NO MAYO!!!!!

    Bravo, Roni. You’ve discovered a way to make a healthy “salad” mix, and one that mayo-haters like me will enjoy! Can’t believe I’m saying this, but, Can’t wait to try it!!! :)

  9. Kate

    I have never thought to use LC this way and can’t wait to try this! I love tuna but never seem to have may on hand.

    Kassie

    Just so you know, as a fellow mayo-hater.. I RARELY, if ever, use mayo in any of my ideas.

    Just don’t like this stuff. It’s GROSS!

  11. Mary Lou

    Tried this recipe – really delicious but I did find the laughing cow cheese a little hard to mix. Do you soften it in the microwave a little bit before adding?

  12. Lindsey Ferguson

    I also hate everything about mayo so I’m thrilled about this recipe! I made it for my very picky husband and used pickle and red bell pepper. He loved it! I can’t wait to try it with chicken for myself. I think I’ll use some LC lite creamy swiss. :) Thank you, Roni!

    Roni~
    What a great idea! I’ve been ridiculously addicted to the LC recently. It’s such a great little flavor punch without the calories that other stuff is.
    Thanks for the tip!

  14. Alison

    What a clever idea, that I just didn’t think of. I made my tuna this way the last two times. As always thanks for the ideas and inspiration.

  15. Garth Delikan

    Wowser!

    This has got to be one of the best and delicious muscle building, low fat nutritious recipe I’ve ever seen!

    Easy to prepare and sooo good!

    be visiting this website more often from now on and picking up some helpful tips I can use in role as a professional nutritionist.

    Thank you.

  16. ELaina

    Wow Roni! This one looks amazing! I am stopping at the store tonight because we are out of tuna haha. I would have never thought to mix the Laughing Cow with tuna like that. Also a GREAT BIG thank you for creating these recipes, sharing the photos to make it easy to recreate, and providing the nutritional info. I am doing Weight Watchers (new) so this makes it sooo easy to do a low points dinner and not have to guess a the points.

  17. Stephanie

    I made this today and instead of putting in a pita or on bread I mixed in 1/2C cold brown rice, it gave great texture and I was able to eat it right out of the bowl. Thanks for all the amazing recipes! I am not on WW, bur your recipes and stories are inspiring!

  18. leigh bridenbaugh

    Amazing! I have been searching for a new lunch idea and this recipe is perfect. I ended up adding scallions to the mix which gave it a nice spicy bite.

    I love your site and am thinking of making your They Don’t Know What’s In There Pizza Sauce tonight. My 6 year old is pretty good with veggies but my 18 month old is in the throwing everything that looks remotely healthy on the floor stage. Do you ever use it with pasta? If so, do you just not blend it as much to keep it a little thicker?
