Ingredients:

    Our Recipe Makeover transforms the traditional high fat, high sodium tuna sandwich. We add celery, coriander and lettuce for nutrition and crunchiness. To lower the fat and sodium, we replace oil-packed tuna with water-packed, high fat mayo with nonfat, and replace salty relish with lemon juice.
