I don’t know why I don’t make more wraps. I love sandwiches (even though I don’t eat cold cuts or cheese myself) and could eat one every day, no problem, and wraps a great alternative. They make a great lunch, or even a great dinner, and what’s even better is that you can put just about anything in a wrap. You can use any kind of fish, poultry, meat, vegetables or condiments, it’s really up to you. Today I made just a simple Tuna Wrap, so you can really vary this in so many ways.
Simple Tuna Wrap
1 5 ounce can solid albacore tuna packed in water, drained
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 rib celery, diced
2 flour tortillas
1/2 cup mixed greens
2 slices red onion, chopped
2 slices tomato, seeded and chopped
4 slices English cucumber, sliced into sticks
1/2 yellow pepper, seeded and cored, sliced into sticks
Place the tuna in a bowl and crumble and mix until it is fine. Add the mayonnaise and celery and mix until well blended. Place one tortilla on a plate and lay some greens down the center of the tortilla. Scoop about half the tuna on top of the greens. Add a portion of the onion, tomato cucumber and pepper on top of the tuna, spreading evenly over the middle. Fold the tortilla, folding in both sides, then fold the top half of the wrap to the center and then fold the bottom half to the center. Repeat the process with the second tortilla. Slice the wraps in half and serve.
This easily made two large wraps, one for me and one for Michelle. You can add so many different things to this sandwich, like using sliced chicken, turkey or shrimp or a seafood salad instead of tuna, adding things in liked crumbled bacon, sliced olives, bean sprouts, avocado, toasted nuts, radishes, fresh herbs, or some crumbled hard boiled egg. The choices seem endless. You can also perk up the mayonnaise by adding some chopped garlic, paprika or some chili powder.
We do still follow our weekly meal plan even though things have been crazy around here with work lately. This week’s menu is:
Sunday: Roasted Chicken, Roasted Potatoes, Asparagus
Monday: Chicken Fried Steak with Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Tuesday: Warm Chicken Salad
Wednesday: Breakfast for Dinner
Thursday: Pub Style Burgers
Friday:Sizzling Shrimp With Garlic
Some of these things I have made before so I will try to do some variations along the way. If you want to follow along or make your own meal plan, here is the planner I use: family_meal_planner. As always, if you have any questions, comments or recipes of your own, please feel free to send along a comment. Enjoy a nice relaxing Sunday and enjoy your meal!
