I love sandwiches, burrito wraps and pita pockets filled with different sorts of fillings, I think they make excellent choices for a quick, easy and light meal. I came across this recipe in the July issue of Young Parents magazine. The recipes featured are fruity ones meant for kids, but they are certainly good for adults too. I think my toddler may be too young for this right now, will KIV for him when he's older.
I love the combination of veggies and fruits added in the tuna mayo salad, which is otherwise kind of boring. The cucumber and celery add crunch to the salad, the green apple slightly tangy and grapes sweet and juicy. This tropical tuna salad is in fact good to eat on its own. I like it in a wrap for some added chewiness to the overall texture. Give it a try :)
Tropical Tuna Salad Wrap (makes 4 to 6 wraps)
- 1 can tuna (packed in water), drained
- 1/4 Japanese cucumber, diced
- 1/4 green apple, diced
- 3/4 stick celery, diced
- 10-12 seedless grapes, quartered
- 2-3 tbsp Japanese mayo
- Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
- 4-6 burrito wraps
- Combine the tuna, cucumber, green apple, celery and grapes and mixed thoroughly with Jap mayo.
- Season with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
- Heat burrito wraps in a pan, 10 secs each side.
- Lay 2-3 tbsp of tuna salad across the middle of the burrito wrap and roll up the wrap. Serve immediately.
- Additional fruits and veg like cherry tomato and pineapple can be added to the tuna salad.
- Lettuce can be added in the wrap.
- Chicken can be used inside of tuna to make a chicken salad.
- Besides burrito wraps, can also use pita bread, prata or plain/wholemeal bread. Proportion of tuna salad should be adjusted accordingly for different types of sandwich.
