Low Calorie Tuna Salad Wrap


Tuna salad sandwiches have always been my favorite, but traditional tuna salad is high in calories from the mayo. This wrap is 240 scrumptious wholesome calories.

If you are not a tuna fan, you can easily use canned chicken instead of tuna. You can change this recipe up to include what you like in a tuna salad. I am a plain Jane when it comes to my tuna salad. I like dill pickles, lettuce, and mayo. However I do not use traditional store bought mayo. I make my own out of Greek yogurt. It tastes the same to me and has 15 calories per serving compared to 90 per serving of regular mayo. I have included the recipe for my Greek yogurt mayo below. I make up a tub of it and use it in all the recipes that call for mayo. It is a huge calorie saver and very tasty! Yes I have tried veganaise and all the other low calorie stuff out there, and I don't care for it.

Now on to the wraps. I use a gluten-free wrap that has flax in it. It is 100 calories per wrap and they are high in protein and fiber. I have a local organic stand here that sells them. If you don't have access to them, then you can go to trader joes, they have two different gluten-free wraps. Or you can make your own using this recipe: gluten free wraps.
