Looking for a sweet and salty take on the classic tuna salad sandwich? This recipe uses low-fat yogurt instead of mayonnaise and chopped apples, which provides the perfect sweet crunch with every bite.

Tuna is packed with protein and low in calories, which is great for supporting weight loss. It's also a great source of vitamin B12 and contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which has been linked to lower rates of cardiovascular disease. 

This recipe serves three, but for those looking to reduce their carbohydrate intake, we recommend enjoying this sandwich "open-faced" using one slice of bread. 

Try this tuna salad and apple sandwich "open-faced" with one slice of bread to lower your carb count.
