In a medium bowl, measure and add the mayonnaise, plain non-fat greek yogurt, minced fresh parsley, garlic paste and the lemon zest. Stir well to combine.
Next add in the tuna, chopped celery, green onions that have been sliced, chopped sun-dried tomatoes and capers. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Adjust the mayo or yogurt in the salad if it needs more.
Serve in romaine lettuce leaves or on toasted seedy bread.
This tuna salad will keep for up to 4 days in the fridge if stored in an air-tight container. I do not recommend freezing.
Blot the sundried tomatoes with paper towel (to absorb most of the oil) before chopping.
