At about 30 Calories per ounce, this is a GREAT addition to any diet AND, it's healthy, too! Great in a sandwich or as a side dish or appetizer. Leave off ANY or all of the Vegetables if you like; because plain Tuna & Mayonnaise makes a good sandwich, but the Vegetables stretch the number of servings and helps to GREATLY lower the Calories per serving.
