Tuna Salad Wraps





Serving tuna salad on fresh spinach leaves and adding broccoli was the creative genius of Jill from Simple Daily Recipes. I love my tuna salad with chopped red onion and a little red wine vinegar. The addition of vegetables makes this healthy and filling. This is an easy low point lunch recipe!

  2. I love Tuna too, and this would be nice for a luncheon because it is also pretty, lol! Happy Wednesday Gina.

  3. I would imagine you could also use collard green leaves and make a true wrap out of it. Collards are almost as good for you as spinach is.

  4. Sure, collard greens are great.

  6. Looks yummy - our spinach leaves this time of year are tiny, so I think I'll use bib lettuce.

  8. I love this recipe and it's such a nice presentation as an appetizer or a quick delicious meal. thanks for sharing. Great Blog. I followed WW for a while after child number 3 so I'm familiar with the numbers. Baby #4 is now two so I think it's time to start counting again. It really does help me put food into perspective, helps me pay attention more.

  11. Great recipe! I never would have thought to put broccoli in tuna salad, but it came out great. I'm eating this in half a whole wheat pita for my lunch this week.

  14. How many ounces are in the can of tuna? 5 oz? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Sorry, a can of tuna is 5 oz, but I think 1 oz might be water leaving you with 4 oz of tuna.

  17. LOVED this! And so did my 5 and 7 year old. Doubled this up with the larger can of tuna and divided by 4. Ate it on a 90 calorie hamburger bun for 4.5 points plus lunch! Wonderful! Next time I will add even more broccoli and red onion and top with spinach leaves and tomatoes. LOVED IT!

  19. I added some whole wheat pasta to this dish to make it for a light summer supper, about 2/3 cup cooked pasta per serving, and served with butter lettuce. Even my 15yr old son liked it!My hint: if you want to take some of the "bite" out of the onion, add a tiny bit(about 1Tbl)of water to the onion and microwave it just until it boils. If you drain the tuna really well, you can add the onions and water into the salad without making it too wet.

  20. I was wondering if the serving for this was 2 of the spinach leaves or 4 of the spinach leaves?

  21. Ate these on tiny spinach leaves, along w/ some grape tomatoes.

    I'll be making and eating this again this week.

    Soo good!

  22. Gina, I just made this with canned salmon & it is so yummy! I love dill hamburger slices with tuna or salmon salad...how many points do these add?
    You are the best, Gina! Thank you for making this Hispanic family healthier! You are about the only chef I refer to for meal planning of any kind!
    Love you!
