Tuna Salad Wrap

It's been pretty busy this past week. My daughters have one more week of summer vacation left so we've been getting ready for back to school and just enjoying the last bit of summer break. On top of that, my oven broke. (it's 18 years old & blew during a power outage from one of our normal Florida storms) Can you believe that? A food blogger without an oven! Luckily, it's a built in oven so I have a separate cook top. I also have a grill, crockpot and toaster oven, so I think I'll be ok until we can get it replaced. It's going to take about 2 weeks though since it's a special order. But the great news is (always look on the positive side) I may be getting a double oven. We have the space for it because of the built in microwave above the oven that also fried during an electrical storm last year (I'm thinking power surge protector with the new one). Anyway, have I bored you yet with my appliance woes?

Well, here is a light dinner or lunch that doesn't require an oven. I know we all know how to make tuna fish but I wanted to share my method for this wonderful wrap.

Tuna Salad Wrap
Recipe by Jamie from Mom's Cooking Club

Serving size - 3 wraps

2 - 5 oz cans of your favorite tuna - I use solid white in water
1/4 cup light mayonnaise - use more or less depending on how much mayo you like
1 celery stalk, chopped small
1 tablespoon red onion, diced small - more or less depending on how much you want
1 tablespoon sweet relish
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
baby spinach leaves
tomato slices
your favorite wraps - I used Light Flatout Sundried Tomato brand

Drain tuna and place in mixing bowl. Mash and break up tuna with a fork. Add remaining ingredients through Dijon mustard and mix well. Place 1/3 of tuna mixture and place near one end of wrap. Lay 2-3 tomato slices on top of tuna. Lay about 4 baby spinach leaves on top of tomatoes. Carefully roll wrap and cut in half.


Mom's Cooking Club Lesson: Play around with the ingredients for different flavors. You could add lettuce or alfalfa sprouts instead of spinach. You could add cheese or some herbs like dill or chives. You could even put some lemon juice in the tuna. So, what do you put in your tuna salad? I would love to hear your ideas. I may be making alot of tuna until my new oven comes.

YUM ...... I love tuna . This sounds great . I've never added onions and celery . I always put sweet pickle relish and the small cubed jalepeno peppers in mine , but will add onions and celery next time .

I added a little dill, some salt and pepper, and I made it a lettuce wrap instead of using the tortilla wrap :)
