Mandarin Tuna Roll Ups

Mandarin Tuna Roll Ups

Jessica Braider
This is a quick-fix meal for a bustling night. For a low carb and lower calorie version, serve the tuna salad over the lettuce without the wraps, or use whole pieces of lettuce as the wraps themselves!
Prep Time 10 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 12 oz. chunk light tuna in water drained
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise (or use any variety),
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 - 2 stalk celery finely chopped 1/2 cup or use canned water chestnuts, drained thoroughly
  • 15 oz. mandarin oranges, drained thoroughly (use 1 cup mandarin orange segments or use fresh orange or pineapple tidbits)
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas or pita pockets
  • 2 cups romaine or other crunchy lettuce chopped

Instructions
 

  • In a medium bowl, combine the tuna, mayonnaise, curry powder and celery (or water chestnuts). Gently stir in the oranges (or pineapple).
  • To serve, spread 1/4 of the tuna mixture in a tortilla or pita pocket, top it with 1/4 of the lettuce, roll it up and slice it in half crosswise (if using a tortilla). Serve it immediately.

Notes

Do Ahead or Delegate: Make the tuna salad, wash and chop the lettuce.
Scramble Flavor Booster: Drizzle some Asian sweet chili sauce or chili garlic sauce over the wrap's filling.
Tip: I always use chunk light tuna instead of white because it is much lower in mercury.
