Italian-Style Tuna Salad in a Wrap – Lightened!

Italian -Style Tuna Salad in a Wrap- Lightened!  A refreshing twist on the traditional tuna salad, only it’s lightened and Italian-style!  Tuna salad is our mom’s recipe and it’s light, delicious, with a subtle crunch and a citrus punch to it.  Not weighted down with a lot of mayonnaise.

This is not your ordinary tuna salad your mom made for you as a kid.  Our mom made her tuna salad different and one she has been making for years, using fresh vegetables, fresh lemon juice and a touch of mayonnaise.  A healthier tuna salad, making it lower in calories and lower in fat!

It’s even terrific served with your favorite sliced bread, or serve it as we did here in a wrap!  We used a Multi-Grain Flour Tortillas to wrap tuna salad and sliced each one in half.

These multi-grain flour tortillas are terrific!  They contain 4 grams of whole grain per serving, 0 grams of trans-fat and additional 4 grams of protein.  A great way to get some whole grains with your meal.

Italian-Style Tuna Salad is colorful, refreshing and perfect for those days when you’re not in the mood to cook anything or just want to make something easy.

Enjoy!!
