Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Tuna lettuce wraps are a super simple and easy lunch to make. It’s light, fresh and easy¬†and definitely 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!

I love to use lettuce to wrap tuna in. When I get that itch for a good tuna sandwich, taking one to work is always a disaster by lunchtime! Having my tuna along some lettuce do use for a wrap is a super simple way to get my fix in during lunch hour.

Prep Tip

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! If there’s one thing that literally triggers me (yes it’s that bad I have to use the word “trigger”) it’s chunk light tuna!

The More The Merrier

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! For my tuna wrap, using a little tomato, bell peppers and some good quality pickles really adds an extra bit of texture to your tuna lettuce wrap. It’s definitely a favorite in our house!
