Want Another Great Way To Use Tuna Salad?

If you're craving a simple, tasty tuna wrap, we've got the perfect recipe for you. Our tuna wrap recipe takes a different approach to tuna salad and pairs the fishy treat with a flour tortilla to make the perfect lunch.

While classic tuna salad is typically made with mayonnaise, we opted to craft ours with cream cheese instead. Mayo is a popular choice, but we're big fans of the lighter texture of cream cheese and the way its flavors pair with ingredients like lemon juice and avocado. 

If you're looking for a low-carb lunch, swap out flour tortillas for lettuce wraps and enjoy your light tuna salad with an extra crunch. The flour tortilla in our tuna wrap recipe is the only major source of carbohydrates in the meal, so it's perfectly keto-friendly without it!
