Expert Tips

  • *To toast coconut, cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 6 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
  • You can sub 1 (6-oz) container of Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free French vanilla yogurt for the yogurt in this recipe.
  • Mild-flavored albacore tuna is the only tuna that can be called "white" because it has the whitest flesh, its mark of distinction.
