Dietitian's tip:

Fat-free mayonnaise adds sodium, so use unsalted canned tuna to keep the total amount of sodium down. For variety, add cucumber or tomato slices, raisins, chopped apples or fresh chives to each sandwich.

Ingredients

  1. 2 cans (6 ounces each) unsalted white tuna packed in water, drained
