Tuna lettuce wrap

It feels like tuna is on the lunch menu every weekend, we have the recurring request for tuna cheese melts. I am always happy to provide high protein meals to the kids but will admit I find tinned tuna very difficult to eat on its own.

Mixing things up

In an effort to make tuna more interesting and easier to eat (every weekend) I came up with these tasty wraps. The fresh vegetables add some much needed texture and new flavours while the avocado dressing is a great replacement for mayo.

These lettuce wraps are the best way to eat tuna if you ask me.
