What My Friends Are Cooking: Michele's Tuna Salad Wrap


I'm taking a little break from blogging this week, and am sharing a few recipes from my friends in "What My Friends Are Cooking Week."   I'll be back soon. 

Michele from Winnsboro, SC enjoys making a Mediterranean Tuna Salad Wrap during the hot summer months.  When I asked the Hines-Sight Blog Facebook friends to tell me what they were cooking, she submitted this recipe which was originally created by Ellie Kreiger from the Food Network.  Michele and I went to a K-12 school together in NC.  She's now an elementary school teacher and loves to cook in her spare time. 

With so many recipes on the Internet these days,   I think it's nice to find one that someone has actually tried a recipe, and now makes it for their family regularly.

Mediterranean Tuna Salad Wrap


Ingredients

  • 2 (6-ounce) cans chunk light tuna in water, drained well
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped calamata olives
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cups pre-washed mixed greens (about 3 ounces)
  • 4 whole-grain wrap breads (about 2 ounces each)
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced


Directions

In a medium bowl combine the tuna, onion, parsley, olives.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour about 2/3 the dressing over the tuna mixture and toss to combine. In a separate bowl, pour the rest of the dressing over the greens and toss to combine.

Place some tuna salad onto each piece of wrap bread. Top with 1 1/2 cups of greens and a few tomato slices. Roll the wraps and serve.
