If you’re looking for a protein-packed lunch staple without packing up so much fat in the body this late summer season, then let me introduce you to spicy crunchy tuna lettuce. It’s one of the healthiest lunch options you can opt for especially now that the summer holiday season is over and we are all back to work.
As work life can require good exercise and healthy meals, so instead of going for the bread version of the tuna sandwich why not go for the refreshing version of tuna with lettuce leaves (instead of chopping the leaves, why not leave them whole so you can wrap the tuna mix with them) the good news is that it’s also very affordable.
The only twist to this recipe is the added spices – chile crisp, and jalapeno for extra fullness and an edgy palate.
1 6oz / 170.10 g can of drained tuna
2 tablespoons of thinly chopped sweet onion
¼ cup of thinly chopped celery
1 chunky chopped jalapeño pepper
¼ cup of mayonnaise
1 teaspoon of rice vinegar
1/2 or 1 teaspoon of Chopped Chilli (depending on how spicy you want the salad)
Pink Himalayan Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Combine the tuna, chopped onion, mayonnaise, and vinegar in a small bowl.
Set aside half of the chunky sliced jalapeño, and add the other half into the tuna mix, stir thoroughly until well combined
Add salt and pepper to taste
Separate the lettuce leaves, take each whole leave and spoon the tuna mix inside
Add the set-aside jalapeño slices and chopped chilli on top of the mix
