Avocado Salmon lettuce wraps are my take on the traditional tuna salad. I love this meal. It’s perfect for lunch, nice and light and reminds me of summer.
Because of the mass overfishing of tuna, we make these wraps with canned salmon or canned chicken. They taste just as delicious, and we’re doing our part to protect the tuna. Give it a try!
The lettuce wrap offers the perfect crunch, and you’re saving on calories by skipping the bread (so you won’t feel as guilty when you finish the meal with chocolate and/or peanut butter).
