Deconstructed Tuna & Egg Salad

Move aside mayo-drenched tuna and egg salads. This deconstructed take on the standard fare uses Greek yogurt for a protein boost and delivers fresh crunch from the cucumber and almonds.

Greek yogurt is high in protein and calcium, both good for bone health. The high protein content may help people feel fuller for longer, boost metabolism and improve gut health.
