High Protein Tuna Salad Lettuce Wraps

Delicious wraps, minus the carbs.

These are rocking my world right now.

Re-Envisioned Tuna Salad

  • 1/2 cup fat free Greek yogurt
  • 1 can tuna
  • 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 cup shredded broccoli stem
  • 1/4 shredded carrot
  • 1 tablespoon sweet relish
  • 1 teaspoon or 1/2 tablespoon capers
  • salt and pepper to taste, I also added paprika
  • cayenne could be interesting, or sriracha

“Shells” are made from butter lettuce, which is amazing for several reasons, not least of which is the fact that you buy it as a living lettuce so it will keep for a very long time in your fridge.

These are very filling, very high in protein (39g!), low in fat, low in carbs and has good plate appeal (it fills a really big plate!). It’s not really enough calories to cut it as a full meal, so I either eat these as a snack or add something alongside.

They’re also really easy to customize – you can coarse chop almost any vegetable to mix in, add apples or parsley, lemon juice, avocado, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, dried cranberries or raisins… the possibilites are pretty much endless. If you try it, let me know how you tweak it.
