Can I Make This Tuna Salad on Bread Instead?
If you don’t have wraps on hand (or simply rather use bread), go for it!
Can I Make This Low Carb?
Don’t want to use a wrap or bread, fill some lettuce leaves with the tuna salad mixture and dig in (Boston lettuce works great!)
More Tips & Variations
Ensure your can of tuna is well-drained, otherwise, your wrap will be a soggy mess and ain’t nobody got time for that!
If you want to add some richness to the mix, feel free to use half Greek yogurt and half mayo.
Some roughly chopped capers (like I used in this tuna melt recipe) is a lovely addition.
Instead of celery, try finely chopped bell pepper.
Try Dijon mustard instead of whole grain.
Instead of sliced avocado as a garnish, guacamole or simply mashed avocado would work great.
Baby arugula or baby kale are other yummy veggie options.
‘Spinach’ wraps were used, but you can use whatever variety you enjoy best!
