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.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the mustard, 1 tablespoon yogurt and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. In a large bowl whisk together the curry powder, the remaining 2 1/2 tablespoons yogurt and the remaining tablespoon lemon juice. 

To the medium bowl, add the apple, 1 can of the tuna, half of the celery and a small pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well with a wooden spoon. This is the kids' tuna salad! Refrigerate until ready to eat, or serve immediately on crackers or toast.
