I love tuna. It is a staple in my pantry and something that I crave frequently. I like to eat tuna in sandwiches, wraps, dips, and casseroles. It is a versatile ingredient that not only tastes good, but is also good for you. It is a healthy lunch choice that is naturally delicious. I am always looking for better ways to prepare my meals and make then as healthy and delicious as possible. Since I use Ocean Naturals canned tuna, it is also quick and easy to incorporate tuna into my recipes in a healthy Eco-conscious way.

What you need:
2 (6 oz.) cans Ocean Naturals Skipjack Light Tuna in Water
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 can sliced black olives, drained & rinsed
1 can sweet yellow corn, drained & rinsed
2 tomatoes, diced
1 cup fresh baby spinach, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 ripe avocados, diced
1/8 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 (6 oz.) container nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 tbsp taco seasoning
Flour tortillas (taco size)

How to make it:
In a bowl combine the Greek Yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic powder, cumin, salt, and taco seasoning. Whisk until smooth.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. {When I chop up the avocado I add the lemon juice directly to the avocado before adding the avocado to the rest of the salad. I have noticed that the lemon helps to keep the avocado from turning brown.}

Spoon 1/4 cup of Skipjack Tuna Southwest Salad into a flour tortilla.
Fold the ends {left and right side} of the tortilla into the wrap and then take the bottom of the tortilla and roll it up to create a nice little healthy Skipjack Tuna Southwest Salad wrap.

This recipe makes quite a bit so it is perfect for sharing with friends and family or for serving at a party. I like to make the southwest tuna salad a wrap, as it is easier and faster to eat and can create less of a mess for me which is great when I only have a few minutes to eat before my children demand my attention. My mother-in-law enjoyed this recipe as a dip. I would serve this with tortilla chips if using the recipe as a dip instead of a wrap.

For the Skipjack Tuna Southwest Salad Wrap I use Ocean Naturals Skipjack Chunk Light Tuna in water because it is only 60 calories with 16g of protein and it’s only ingredients are skipjack tuna, water, and salt – no additives and no words I cannot pronounce. My husband has gotten me into the habit of purchasing products that do not have additives.

Aside from the healthy factor, I am also able to track exactly where the tuna I am eating came from by visiting Ocean Naturals My Tuna. The tuna I used to make this recipe came from New Zealand. Pretty cool, right? I also like knowing that that the food I am feeding my family is coming from an Eco-conscious company. Ocean Naturals uses only wild, responsibly-caught seafood using catch methods that limit ecosystem impacts. So the tuna that I purchase is also good for the planet.
