Tuna Wrap Salad is so much more healthful than a traditional tuna salad sandwich. And it is easy and quick to assemble as well.

Tuna Salad Wrap Prep Time: 15 min
Ready In: 15 min

Servings: 4

1 can water-packed White Tuna, drained (6.5 oz)
1 small Carrot, shredded
¼ cup Celery, finely chopped
¼ cup Green Pepper, finely chopped
½ tbsp dried Chives or Chervil
3 tbsp non-fat Mayonnaise
1 dash Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
4 medium Flour Tortillas (8-inch)
4 tbsp non-fat Cream Cheese
4 medium well-dried leaves of Leafy Green Lettuce
½ cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar Cheese
4 medium sprigs Fresh Mint, Cilantro or Flat-leaf Parsley

In small bowl, combine tuna, carrot, celery, green pepper, chives and enough mayonnaise to make a moist (but not wet) salad. Add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
On each tortilla, spread a thin layer of cream cheese (about 1 tablespoon) across the center two-thirds of tortilla’s surface, leaving a 2-inch margin along edges. Center 1 lettuce leaf on top of each tortilla. Press leaf into cream cheese.
Spread one-fourth of the tuna salad firmly over each lettuce leaf, leaving a 2-inch margin at top and bottom of each tortilla. Sprinkle one-fourth of cheese over each tortilla and top with sprig of fresh mint or other fresh herb.
Fold the bottom of the tortilla up to cover the top of the filling. Fold in the two sides a quarter-inch. Roll tortilla up, holding side folds in. Roll wraps tightly and as firmly as possible to ensure packets stays closed. Tightly seal each in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve or pack. Wraps made without wet ingredients can keep for 24 hours or more without getting soggy.
