Comment

The Tuna Cabbage Salad was a big hit at our house.  I added some dried dill weed, which I always like in tuna salad.  Some shredded carrots made it more colorful.  Substituting about half the mayo in any recipe with plain yogurt makes sense to me!
 

Really easy awesome recipe. My recommendation is to add a little cilantro and possibly some lemon juice and put in tortillas for an awesome, non-fried, version of a fish taco.

We served this to our fourth grade students and it was a huge hit! We served in corn tortillas. This is a great way to get some more veggies into our diet!
