Pasta salad can be a good choice for a hot summer’s (or Indian summer’s ) lunch or dinner. Tuna and white beans combine to provide low-fat protein. Lighten it up by using non-fat yogurt and choose multi-grain pasta such as Barilla Plus. Yum!
¼ cup light mayonnaise
½ cup non-fat plain yogurt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 pound cooked pasta, rinsed in cold water and drained
1 (6-ounce) can water-packed tuna, drained
1 (15-ounce) can white beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
½ cup chopped cilantro or basil
In a large bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, yogurt and lemon juice until well-combined.
Add remaining ingredients and toss to mix completely.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow flavors to combine.
