Tuna Salad Lettuce Wrap

This is such a light, fresh and easy to make lunch that beats the plain old tuna sandwich. These tuna salad lettuce wraps aren’t drowning in mayo, and have so much flavor there’s no way your kids will not eat this up!

This is one of my favorite summer time lunches to put together with some potato chips or veggie straws. It’s packed with plenty of nutrients with the addition of bell pepper and I recently started adding a bit of cilantro this gives this a real fresh taste that we all love!

Wrapping them in lettuce is a great way to turn this into a healthy snack, a side, or even just a quick lunch. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get your hands in there and make a little mess!

Prep

NO CHUNK LIGHT!

I’ve got to admit. I’m EXTREMELY picky about my tuna salad. I don’t like too much mayo, and I absolutely cringe at the thought of using chunk light. Sorry to you chunk light fans out there, but it’s cat food! I use dijon mustard to lighten up the use of mayo and keep some moisture to the tuna, and the lemon juice helps with that as well!

The More TheĀ Merrier

The key to keeping this salad light is the veggies. Feel free to add more to the salad if you like. Cucumbers, avocados, maybe some carrots? Whatever your family enjoys it will be a hit!

Enough Talk. More Rock.
