Upgrade Your Lunch with This Healthier Tuna-Salad Sandwich

Are you or your kids stuck in a brown-bag rut, eating the same midday meal day after day? It's time to break that habit! Today's recipe is inspired by something Sarah Carey used to love to find in her childhood lunch box: a tuna-salad sandwich. Even better, she's cutting some of the fat out by using water-packed tuna and Greek yogurt (most recipes just call for mayo). Add a few cucumber slices for a satisfying crunch, and that's all you need to make your new go-to sandwich. Bon appetit!
