Cucumber Tuna Salad Pitas

Here is a quick, easy and tasty lunch idea for you from Betty Crocker again, “the 300 calorie cookbook”.  What do you guys do for lunch?  I’m always hoping that there are leftovers because if I’m the only one home, it’s a pain to make something just for me and pb & j gets old after awhile.  This kicks up the tuna sandwich a notch which is a good thing!

1 pouch (7.6 oz) albacore tuna (I used 3 2.6 oz pouches of chunk light tuna, I’m sure you could use canned instead of the pouch)

1/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise or salad dressing

1/4 cup plain fat free yogurt (didn’t have any so left it out, the tuna from the pouch was moist enough without it)

1/2 cup chopped cucumber (1 baby cucumber is right about 1/2 cup)

2 tablespoons chopped red onion

2 tablespoons chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed (I am all out of dill so left this out)

1 teaspoon salt free seasoning brand (I just used Season All)

2 whole wheat pita (pocket) breads, 8″ (I used an Oroweat Sandwich Thin, see picture, 100 calories each, tasty!)

1 cup shredded lettuce

1 small tomato, chopped (1/2 cup) (left it off)

1  In medium bowl, combine all ingredients except lettuce and tomato.

2  Cut pita breads in half to form pockets.  Fill with tuna mixture.  Add lettuce and tomato.

    We love all of your recipes. This one is especially good because Cliff love Tuna sandwiches and this is a bit different and very tasty.
