> 2 stalks celery
> 1 small carrot, peeled
> 1 small red pepper, seeded
> 2 tbsp nonfat plain Greek yogurt
> 2 tbsp lemon juice
> 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
> 2 tsp Dijon mustard
> 1/4 tsp garlic powder
> 2 (5 oz) cans solid white albacore tuna packed in water, drained
> 8 thin sliced whole -grain bread
> Lettuce and tomato slices, to garnish (optional)


Roughly chop the celery, carrot, and bell pepper. Add to a food processor and pulse until just finely chopped, being careful not to over-pulse, stopping and stirring occasionally. Drain the veggies through a fine-mesh sieve to remove excess liquid.
Transfer vegetable mixture to a medium bowl, along with the yogurt, lemon juice, mayonnaise, mustard, garlic powder, and ¼ tsp salt. Stir to combine. Fold in the tuna.
Top 4 bread slices with tuna mixture, lettuce, and tomato (if using). Top with remaining 4 slices of bread.
