  • 1/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise dressing or salad dressing
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • Dash ground black pepper
  • 1 12 - ounce can tuna (water pack), drained and flaked
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot, celery, or red sweet pepper
  • 4 frankfurter buns, split
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (2 ounces)


  1. In a medium bowl stir together mayonnaise dressing, mustard, dill, and pepper. Stir in tuna and carrot; set aside.
  2. Use a fork to hollow out the tops and bottoms of frankfurter buns, leaving 1/4-inch shells. Sprinkle cheese into hollowed-out bun bottoms. Spoon tuna mixture over cheese. Add bun tops. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Chill for 2 to 24 hours. Pack in insulated containers with ice packs. Makes 4 sandwiches.
