Ingredients

  • 3 whole wheat English muffins (I used Orowheat), split in half
  • 6 ounces canned salmon in water, drained
  • 2 tablespoons plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 large celery stalk, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 6 slices tomato (large)
  • 2 ounces sharp white Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat the broiler and set the rack 6 to 8 inches from the heat. Place the English muffin halves, cut side up, on a baking sheet. Cook under the broiler until toasted, about 1 minute. Watch carefully so they don’t burn.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the salmon, yogurt, mayonnaise, bell pepper, celery, capers, pepper and salt.
  • Divide the salmon mixture between the 6 English muffin halves. Top with the tomato slices and Cheddar cheese slices.
  • Broil until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Watch carefully so that the cheese doesn’t burn.
  • Serve.
