Back in high school, I had a weird obsession with tuna wraps. It was one of the only things I actually liked when buying lunch in the cafeteria. It was one of the only things that didn't weigh me down all day, and helped satisfy my tuna craving. I have been obsessed with tuna salad ever since I was a young kid. Way back when during the years my Mom made my lunch for me, I always requested a tuna sandwich. Obviously not much has changed.
Recipes like this are some of my favorite to make. Recently, I have really loved playing around with fresh herbs and seeing what they do to a recipe. In this case, the dill takes this tuna to the next level and it creates the most perfect marriage of flavors.
- fresh dill
- yellow onion
- juice of lemon
- salt and pepper
- baby spinach
- matchstick carrots
- spinach and herb tortilla wraps
Empty the tuna packets into a mixing bowl. Using a fork, mash the tuna until any big clumps are gone. Mix in mayonnaise until well combined. Chop up the dill and add that in. Dice the onion and celery and mix that in. Juice one lemon into the tuna and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
To build the wrap, lay the spinach down in the middle. Add the carrots on top. Dollop about 1 cup of tuna on top of the carrots. To fold the wrap, fold 2 opposite side in toward the middle. Holding them in place, grab the bottom of the wrap and fold it over the sides. Roll the wrap away from you until secure. Cut in half or eat whole.
What if I don't like tuna?
You can absolutely switch the tuna out for chicken and make a chicken salad wrap! Chicken would also compliment the flavor from the dill very well.
Do you have to make a wrap with the tuna salad?
Nope! You can use this tuna salad recipe in so many ways! It would make a delicious tuna salad sandwich or a phenomenal, cheesy tuna melt.
