Tuna Lettuce Wrap with Avocado Yogurt Dressing Recipe
Here’s a tasty way to transform ordinary canned tuna into a delicious lunch. These low-calorie, low-carb lettuce wraps are filled with hearts of palm, tomatoes, carrots and onion and topped with a light avocado dressing. I found two to fill me up, but the calories are low enough you could easily eat three. Using a good quality tuna in oil makes all the difference in flavor here.
I made the avocado yogurt dressing in my magic bullet, it makes a larger portion than is needed in this recipe
but it can easily be stored in an air-tight container in the
refrigerator and used a veggie or cracker dip, salad topper or drizzled
over grilled fish.
