If you are anything like me, each day you start with the best of intentions. You tell yourself that THIS is the day that you are going to eat healthier, this is the day that you are going to stick to your goals, and stay on track… only to find yourself shoving pizza in your face by lunch time, as you try to coordinate the mayhem and chaos that is meal time with kids.
Well, if you are looking for an EASY recipe that help you eat healthier and stick to your goals, then this Tuna Salad Lettuce Wrap is just what you’re looking for!
This super-simple recipe (I’m not even sure you can even really call it a recipe because it’s that easy) only requires 3 ingredients and you can throw it together in about 2 minutes! It is keto friendly and is only around 100 calories!
Don’t get me wrong, you can find some really good looking recipes for Tuna Salad out there on Pinterest, and I’m sure they are delicious, but this mom ain’t got time for slicing radishes, or measuring dill weed, or grating ginger! I need something I can whip together as my 3 year old is having a tantrum about the color plate I served her lunch on.
And that’s the beauty of this recipe! It’s so simple, your 3 year old could probably make it for you! 😉
- Star-kist Tuna Creations (they come in a variety of flavors: Sweet & Spicy, Bacon Ranch, Tai Chili Style, Hot Buffalo, Lemon Pepper, Honey BBQ, Mesquite, Herb & Garlic, and my personal favorite, Ranch)
- Mayo (you can choose your preference of mayo(check out this Avocado Oil Mayo!!), light mayo, Miracle Whip, or even Greek Yogurt if you prefer!)
- Romaine Lettuce
Seriously, all you have to do is take a packet of the flavored tuna of your choice and mix it with a tablespoon of mayo (or Greek yogurt). Then slap in on a couple of leaves of romaine lettuce. It doesn’t get much simpler! The tuna has plenty of flavor already, so there’s no need to add anything else! I usually just like to serve mine with a side of cottage cheese or maybe some fresh veggies.
Another great thing about this recipe is that it allows for some variation depending on the flavor of tuna you make it with. If you start out really liking the Bacon and Ranch flavor, but get bored of it after awhile, just switch it up to another flavor!
Also, if you DO find yourself with a couple extra minutes on your hands (I know, yeah right!), you can get creative by adding some “extras” like celery, cucumber, pickles, tomatoes, etc. This will take your tuna salad to the next level and have you feeling pretty fancy!
