  • 4 wraps or large tortillas
  • 2 cups Swiss or Monterey jack cheese, shredded
  • 2 (6-ounce) cans chunk light tuna in water, drained well
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup parsley or cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olives, chopped, any kind
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup lettuce, chopped
  • 1 large tomatoes, diced
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place the wraps on a greased baking sheet. Evenly distribute the cheese on each. Bake for 2-3 minutes until cheese melts.

In a medium bowl combine the tuna, onion, parsley or cilantro, olives.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, zest, lemon juice, cayenne, salt and pepper. Pour about 2/3 the dressing over the tuna mixture and toss to combine. In a separate bowl, pour the rest of the dressing over the greens and tomato with salt and pepper; toss to combine.

Place some tuna salad onto each wrap or tortilla. Top with some of the lettuce and tomato mixture. Roll the wraps and serve.
