MMMmonday - Healthy Tuna Salad & WINNER!

I got this recipe once again from one of my favorite sources - Wwrecipes - I subscribe to the daily e-zine paid edition and its one of the few things I don't regret paying for from the internet...I bought a lifetime membership and it has served me very well and made some yummy treats for my family...  There is also a smaller free e-zine and a marvelous website!

"Canned tuna is a healthy, flavorful, and versatile product, but
most recipes for tuna salad use so much mayonnaise that
these natural benefits are lost. Here is a low-fat, no fuss version
that lets the tuna stand out." Chef Joe

Healthy Tuna Sandwiches

2 cans (6 oz, 170 g) tuna packed in water, drained
Juice of 2 limes or 1 lemon
2-3 scallions (spring onions), green and white parts,
finely chopped
1/2 cup (125 ml) chopped fresh cilantro (coriander
leaves) or parsley
1/4 cup (60 ml) chopped walnuts or pecans
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Hot sauce to taste (optional)
8 slices whole wheat bread, toasted if desired
Or 4 whole wheat flour tortillas or pita breads
Romaine lettuce leaves
Slices of ripe tomato

Combine the tuna, lime juice, scallions, cilantro, walnuts, salt,
pepper, and optional hot sauce in a bowl and stir to combine.
Make sandwiches using the tuna mixture, your bread of choice,
lettuce leaves, and tomato slices. Makes 4 sandwiches.

My notes: You can also just skip the bread and scoop onto the lettuce leaves and surround with grape tomatoes or tomato wedges if you are carb conscious... I used parsley since I had some growing in my window and it was yummy!  We had to sprinkle the nuts on afterwards since Wayne can't eat them.... but I don't think it made too big a difference...

**** I can also finally announce a winner to my first contest - There were only three people who guessed "D", so I put their names in a hat and drew MONICA!  Monica, you have an email with instructions on its way, please get back to me within 48 hours so I can get your prize ordered!
