Mayo-less Tuna Sandwich

Devin Alexander is who deserves the credit for the tuna sandwich hold the mayo. Using hummus in place of mayonnaise keeps the tuna spreadable but adds fiber, (more) protein, vitamins and minerals- such as folic acid, zinc, and magnesium.

In the Biggest Loser Cookbook that I found Devin's recipe, she calls for red onions and put the tuna spread on an English Muffin, which is quite delicious but red onions (unless hidden) do not fly with my children. I added just a touch of Italian dressing to add a little zing, since omitting the red onion seemed to omit zing.
