Tuna salad sandwiches and nutrition!

As is generally known by many, tuna salad is a simple mix of tuna, mayo and relish. I generally like to make up just enough for two sandwiches by purchasing the small 3 ounce cans at the local grocery store. I make sure to buy my tuna packed in water as opposed to oil as I feel this is more healthy.
1 3 oz can Tuna, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp (34 g) Mayo
1 (34 g) tbsp relish
Mix well and use about ½ of the tuna salad per whole sandwich. Simple, fast and delicious!
I like to make just ½ a sandwich which also helps to make this recipe stretch even further! Here’s the nutritional breakout:
Calories: 126
Cal from fat: 38
Cholesterol: 11
Sodium: 200
Carbs: 15
Protein: 8
Combining this with a simple garden salad would satisfy even the most strict of diets!
