This cool sandwich filling is awesome in pitas! You can spice it up with some powdered cayenne :-)

Recipe Ingredients for Summer Salad for sandwiches

1 can tuna, I prefer albacore
1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese
4 tsp mustard
2 tbs light mayo
1/4 cup frozen peas, not thawed
1/4 avocado, chopped
1/4 small onion, chopped
1 medium pickle, chopped
1 tsp paprika
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
4 tbsp pickle juice
1 tbsp dried dill
1 cup raw baby spinach

Recipe Directions for Summer Salad for sandwiches

  1. Drain tuna and put in a bowl with the cottage cheese, mustard, mayo, pickle juice and spices. Mix well until the tuna isn't chunky.

  2. Fold in the frozen peas, onion, pickle and avocado. The best way to chop the avocado is to cut it in half and remove the pit, then slice it in thin strips while still in the peel, then slice it horizontal in thin strips to create small squares.

  3. Serve on bread with the spinach instead of lettuce. I like to use pitas :-) The bread is not in this recipe so make sure you count those calories separate!
