Did you know that a wedge of The Laughing Cow cheese added to a can of tuna makes some of the tastiest, lightest tuna salads? Simply replace the mayo in your favorite tuna salad recipe! It not only cuts out a lot of fat and calories, but also adds in some creamy and delicious flavor!

Here are five ideas to get your started down an exciting cheesy tuna salad path:

Simple Tuna Salad (Pictured): Take a 3 oz can of tuna and mix it with a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light French Onion, 1/4 cup diced red pepper, 1/4 cup diced cucumber, a pinch of salt, black pepper and dried thyme. Stuff you favorite pita or use a filling in a wrap. Click here for a more detailed recipe with photos.

Cheesy Salsa Tuna Burgers: Tuna doesn’t always need to be served cold. Combine a 7 oz can of tuna with one egg, two wedges of The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss, 1/4 cup salsa, 3/4 cups old-fashioned ground oats, onion powder, chili powder, cumin, dried cilantro, salt and pepper, plus a dash of hot sauce. Form into 3-4 patties and cook each side in a hot skillet for about three minutes. Serve on a whole wheat hamburger bun or sandwich thin. Click here for a more detailed recipe with photos.

Tuna Salad Caprese Style: Mix a 5 oz can of tuna with a wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Mozzarella, Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil, 10 chopped basil leaves, 10 halved grape tomatoes, 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Serve with crackers, on a sandwich thin or wrapped in large lettuce leaves. Click here for a more detailed recipe with photos.

Two Cheese Tuna Melt Wrap: Mix a 5 oz can of tuna with a wedge of Smooth Sensations Cream Cheese Spread Garden Vegetable 1/3 Less Fat, five grape tomatoes diced, one sweet gherkin diced, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place the mixture on a wrap, top it with a grated Mini Babybel Light and melt it under the broiler. Wrap up and enjoy! Click here for a more detailed recipe with photos.

Bok Choy Tuna Wraps: Go out of your vegetable comfort zone for this light idea. Cut off the leafy portion of six Bok Choy leaves, set aside, and chop the stems. Combine the chopped stems with a 5 oz can of tuna, one wedge of The Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb, 1/2 tbsp soy sauce and 1/2 tsp ground ginger. Serve the salad wrapped in the saved six Bok Choy leaves. Click here for a more detailed recipe with photos.
