One of my favorite clean eating and quick lunches! No cooking required!
- Bibb or Boston Lettuce for wraps
- 1 can chunk light tuna in water
- 1 cup of veggies – broccoli and celery
- 1/2 cup grapes
- 1/4 cup creamy herb dressing
Creamy herb dressing
- 1 medium avocado
- 1.5 cups nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 4 tbsp. chopped cilantro
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp. sea salt
- 1 dash white pepper
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
For Dressing: Blend all ingredients until smooth. Store leftover dressing in a covered container in the refrigerator. This dressing is wonderful on salads, but also great as a dip for raw vegetables.
For Tuna Salad: Mix all ingredients together and place into lettuce wraps.
Let me know what you think!
Being that I grew up not eating red meat, school lunches were quite difficult for my mother. I ate a lot of tuna salad sandwiches while everyone else was having their deli meat sandwiches. I still really enjoy Tuna salad sandwiches but not the calories that come along with them. This recipe is a lighter version which includes broccoli and gives it a nice crunch. It makes for a quick easy delicious lunch!
- 1 can light tuna in water
- 3 stalks of chopped celery
- head of broccoli
- 1/2 chopped red onion
- 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp mustard
- 2 tbsp pickle relish
- fresh pepper
I mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl and then separate into 2 separate bowls – one for lunch and another for the next day (or I guess you could share). Notice how little mayo is used but it really adds a ton of flavor.
