Here's a cool, classic variant on tuna salad for your kiddies. I kept the binder pretty neutral, but instead of mayo, I swirled in a bit of Greek yogurt to lighten it up. It's also loaded with a hint of mustard, and fresh celery and apple, which I feel like all kids like, right? Now for the deluxe version. It's laced with fresh lemon juice and curry powder-what? I also threw in some chopped almonds, fresh parsley, a bunch of red grapes and minced celery to boost the antioxidants.
