This vegetarian "tuna" salad was so yummy! I love taking it for lunch. I wasn't sure how I would like the yogurt in place of the mayo, but it turned out great. Whether you're a vegetarian or not, you should try this recipe!

I love me a canned tuna, but I was surprised how closely this resembled tuna salad. You won't get the fish flavor, but it definitely will make someone who is vegetarian satisfied. Along with the yogurt, I added a little bit of chipotle mayo for heat. This was pretty tasty and went very well with the leftover pumpernickel bread I had on hand.
