Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • Rather than pre-make the wraps, serve this buffet style and have people make their own. Keep the vegetables in separate bowls rather than mix them into the salad. You will probably need extras and consider adding other options (chopped cucumbers, sliced green olives or pickles, etc.). Each person can grab a lettuce leaf, some of the prepared tuna salad, and add their own combination of vegetables to complete the wrap.
  • You can also serve this tangy tuna salad as a filling on whole wheat bread or a wrap. Serve with lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
  • Try adding different seasonings such as 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or dried dill weed.
