Italian-Style Tuna Salad in a Wrap – Lightened!

A refreshing twist on tuna salad – Italian-style!
The taste is delicious with a light crunch and a citrus-y punch to it. This tuna salad is colorful and refreshing. It’s terrific for those days you want to make something easy.

This is not your ordinary tuna salad your mom made for you as a kid.  Not our mom anyway.  This is a tuna salad she has been making for years,  using fresh vegetables, fresh lemon juice and a touch of mayo making it lower in calories and lower in fat!  

It’s also terrific served with toasted French bread or serve it as a tuna wrap in a Multi-Grain Flour Tortillas.

I love these Multi-Grain soft taco tortillas because you get 4 grams of whole grain per serving, with 0 grams of trans-fat and additional 4 grams of protein.  A great way to get some whole grains with your meal.   Enjoy!

Italian Style Tuna Salad in a Wrap- Lightened!

  • 2 cans Solid White Tuna (packed in Water) , drained
  • 1 Carrot stick – minced
  • 1 Celery stalk – minced

  • 1/8 tsp. ground pepper
  • 4 Multi- Grain Flour Tortillas (soft taco, medium size)   

In a medium size bowl,  mix tuna with minced vegetables , lemon juice, mayo and pepper.

Cover with clear wrap and chill up to one hour before serving.
Spoon about 2 to 3 tablespoons of tuna salad and place onto a multi-grain flour tortilla.
Gently pick up one side and begin to roll.  Cut in half,  place onto a serving platter. Repeat with each Multi-Grain Flour Tortillas.  Add some chopped lettuce and tomatoes on the side, and serve.
