Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Want a quick and easy yet tasty lunch?  This takes only minutes, is very filling and delicious.  Serves 2.

Mix:

  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1/4 cup of chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup cooked peas
  • 2 tablespoons (or enough for your taste, don’t make it too dry) of your favorite vinaigrette (or if you can use it, mayonnaise)

Spoon mixture onto large lettuce leaves (I used red butter lettuce).  You’ll need 6 to 8 leaves depending on how hungry you are and how big a spoonful you place on each lettuce leaf and how many toppings you want to add.

You can top each lettuce leaf with a number of things to give them some crunch and/or added flavor such as:

  • Grated carrot
  • Grated radish
  • Grated jicama*
  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced avocado

*If you aren’t familiar with jicama, its also called Mexican yam bean or Mexican turnip.  Its a white, fibrous root that has a high water content and is very crunchy like an apple. Jicama is an anti-inflammatory that can help people who suffer from disorders such as IBS, leaky gut syndrome, and ulcers.  Its also very delicious.
