Middle Eastern Tuna Salad
It's so easy to dress up your tuna salad with yogurt, lemon, tahini, and garlic, replacing boring old mayonnaise. If cumin and parsley aren't your dish, swap in spices and herbs you love. Beyond the dressing, the chickpeas add an interesting texture and fiber. This is a great dish for swapping in more plant-based proteins.
1/3 cup non-fat, plain yogurt
2 Tbsp. tahini

2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. cumin
1 (6 oz.) can solid white tuna in water, drained and flaked
