Tuna Salad Wraps
Simple, delicious, and easy tuna salad. The best thing about salads like this is that you can actually add what you like or have on hand, for example, instead of celery you may add bell peppers or instead of scallions perhaps red onions. It really do not make a huge difference, but this one was a winner. Just in case if you do not eat Mayo, you can totally eat it without it. Actually, my boys are not mayonnaise lovers at all, so I always make 2 different tuna salad. Usually, I’d add boiled eggs and some healthy fats, like sunflower seeds and avocado.
With that being said, this one is a favorite of mine, as well as my daughters’. We make a couple of wraps, a big pitcher of iced tea and we make dinner and a movie night if the boys are doing their own thing. If you try it, please let me know in the comment section or use hashtags on Instagram #sandraseasycooking, and show me your masterpiece.

- Place wrap flat on the cutting board, and lay lettuce on the one half of the wrap. Spoon about 2 tablespoons or more, of Tuna salad on the lettuce and tightly wrap until you reach the end.
Add avocado only if you’re going to eat tuna salad right away. It’s an amazing mayonnaise replacement, and it does give a really delicious flavor.
Sunflower seeds or even pumpkin seeds are fantastic for that extra crunch.
Boiled egg – If you don’t like or eat eggs, don’t worry, it tastes fantastic without it, too. But my family and I add it often in this kind of salads, and we love it. I wrote as an add-on because I know that some of you avoid eggs.
If you DO NOT eat tuna, you can replace it with grilled or roasted chicken
