Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can sub 1 (6-oz) container of Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free French vanilla yogurt for the yogurt in this recipe.
  • tip 2
    Mild-flavored albacore tuna is the only tuna that can be called "white" because it has the whitest flesh, its mark of distinction.
