Crunchy Tuna Wraps

Who doesn't love a good wrap?

They are perfect for tossing in a lunch bag for work or for a nutritious, easy and quick dinner during the work week.

Now that the new year is almost in session again, and my youngest goes back to school, and I go back to work, I'm looking for some new recipes for those hectic evenings we seem to have, especially in the autumn months leading up to Christmas.  This recipe is one I found in my cooking magazine and for my vegan daughter, I will just make hers minus the tuna!


1 can of light or white albacore tuna, packed in water, drained
1/4 c. finely chopped celery
1/4 c. chopped scallions or red onions
3 Tbsp of chopped, sweet red pepper
2 Tbsp of olive oil mayonnaise (or regular mayo)
2 tsp prepared mustard
2 spinach (or regular) tortillas
1 c. shredded romaine lettuce

  • In a small bowl, mix the first 7 ingredients until blended.
  • Spread over the tortillas.
  • Sprinkle with the lettuce.
  • Roll up tightly, jelly-roll style.
Serve with low sodium tortilla chips or baked veggie chips and fresh fruit like melon cup.  For melon cup, I use a melon-baller for cantaloupe and watermelon and then add some fresh blackberries or blueberries.  Drizzle a tiny amount of honey over the top or leave plain.

TIP:  for vegan wraps: to replace the tuna, just add in chopped cucumber, tomato, green pepper and yellow pepper.


ps as with all of the recipes with the "faithfixes" label, you do have permission to copy and print this post.

This looks really good. I've been having salads all summer for lunch, and it's time to change it up!
