loaded tuna wrap

A healthy lunch is a great way to get through the day. Quick lunches do not have to come in the form of fast food or have to be bought from a vending machine. This quick tuna wrap sandwich can be made in just under 10 minutes and will keep you full all through the day. We packed ours with lots of green vegetables but feel free to use your imagination and use any vegetable you have on hand.

Loaded tuna wrap

Yields 1 wrap

Ingredients:

  • 1 large whole wheat spinach tortilla wrap
  • 1 can albacore white tuna, drained
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise, more or less depending on desired texture
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cucumber
  • 1/2 cup packed baby spinach

Directions:

  1. Lay out spinach wrap and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add tuna, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, onion, celery and cucumber. Mix together. Add more mayonnaise if you want a creamier tuna salad.
  3. Add spinach to the middle of the wrap and lay tuna mixture on top.
  4. Roll up wrap like you would a burrito. If the wrap will not stay closed simply use a toothpick to hold it together.

Note: Other ideas for vegetable add-ins are carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, green peppers and water chestnuts.
