Check out some of the most popular Dash Diet Salad Recipes along with 5 of the best Dash Diet Salad dressing recipes- with an emphasis on low sodium.

Skinny Tuna Melt

A tuna melt turns an ordinary tuna sandwich into an extraordinary one. It makes a super quick and easy lunch and is absolutely delicious.

 Compliment this lunch with an apple and a side salad. Use spinach or kale, add a few cherry tomatoes and mix lightly with low fat Thousand Island dressing used in the tuna melt. Quick and easy, lunch is served.

6 ounces white tuna packed in water, drained
1/3 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup low fat Russian or Thousand Island salad dressing
2 whole-wheat English muffins, split
3 ounces reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, grated
black pepper to taste
Preheat broiler. Combine tuna, celery, onion and salad dressing. Season with pepper. Toast English muffin halves. Place split-side-up on baking sheet and top each with 1/4 of tuna mixture. Broil 2-3 minutes or until heated through. Top with cheese and return to broiler until cheese is melted, about 1 minute longer.
Serves 4
