Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 multigrain crispbread crackers, such as
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 3-ounce can water-packed chunk light tuna (see Note)
  • 1 sliced scallion
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. Top crackers with cream cheese, tuna and scallion. Squeeze lemon over the top and season with pepper.

Tips & Notes

  • Note: Chunk light tuna, which comes from the smaller skipjack or yellowfin, has less mercury than canned white albacore tuna. The FDA/EPA advises that women who are or might become pregnant, nursing mothers and young children consume no more than 6 ounces of albacore a week; up to 12 ounces of canned light tuna is considered safe.
