"This was amazing!! Perfect texture and makes for a great lunch (I was able to get four meals out of one loaf) In order to lighten it up, I made the sauce with 2 percent Greek yogurt. The sauce turned out great and was way lighter! I also did not cook the veggies in that much oil and I used a whole grain bread. The sauce recipe makes lots"

"I haven't tried the recipe- there are too many calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium in the recipe! If I do, I'd emit the salt, use whole grain panko instead of the bread crumbs, use reduced fat mayo (or tofunaise) for the mayo, and nonfat Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream. That should really lighten it up! Hmm, I wonder if I could substitute tuna for the salmon in this recipe, or mackerel..."

"This looks good but 884 calories are too many.

Editors can you help me lighten it?"
