Secret Recipe Club: Tuna Salad Club Wrap

This month for my Secret Recipe Club assignment I found myself visiting Lindsay's Blog Life and Kitchen "untrained in life and cooking, but that makes both more fun!" Too cute!! Take a look at her recipe index and you'll see why my "ideas" list was really full!!

Reading about Lindsay brought a big smile to my face - I love that her hopes for her blog are that one day her young daughter will be able to look back through and see glimpses and snapshots of their life as she grew up, and have access to all those yummy recipes she grew up with! I treasure the memories my mom made a point to preserve for me in the form of photo albums and a well loved cookbook, and this is the equivalent in electronic form. I feel that way too - although I also love having it for myself to look back on, as much as I hope one day my children might be able to look back and find something meaningful. (I also happen to have a fondness for the name Lindsay at the moment - seeing as how our little one who is due in less than a month will be named Lindsey!)

So, as I started browsing through Lindsay's recipe index, here are some of the recipes that I started bookmarking: Honey Roasted Peanut Brittle (I am a huge peanut brittle fan!!), Bacon Cheddar Dog Cookies (hello, we have FIVE dogs, they would LOVE if one of the recipes I created were just for them to taste test!!), 4 Cheese Pizzaghetti (YUMM - pasta and cheese, yes please!), Chicken Cream Cheese Enchiladas (Mexican always goes over well at our house), some super yummy Pasta Salad, or this amazing Tuna Club Salad Wrap (tuna, eggs, bacon... need I say more?!)! There are so many good dishes to choose from! I would like to just start at the top of the index and work my way on through.

I ended up settling on the Tuna Salad Club Wrap - it was just calling to me!! I'm so glad I decided on this one - the tuna salad recipe by itself is really FANTASTIC. There are so many ways you could use this mix; I think the next way I might use the remaining filling mixture is in a wrap, cold, with diced avocado, lettuce, and tomato. Yumm! I had to make sure my son helped me eat the rest of it, since I'm (very) pregnant and have to limit my tuna consumption at the moment. It was hard though - I could have eaten the whole container with a spoon by myself! :D

This club wrap is completely delicious! I loved the creamy tuna salad blended with the melted cheese, combined with the texture of the tomatoes and the crispy chewy bacon. It was a fabulous lunch that I really enjoyed.

Tuna Salad Club Wrap slightly adapted from Life and Kitchen

Tuna Salad
3 5-oz cans tuna in water, drained
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tsp mustard
1 large celery stalk, diced
3 hard boiled eggs, small diced
3 TBS sweet relish
2 TBS dill pickle, diced
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper to taste

Wrap Sandwich
appx. 1/3 cup tuna salad
1 whole wheat tortilla
1-2 slices of bacon, cooked to your desired crispiness
1 large slice tomato, seeded and diced (remove as much liquid as possible)
2 TBS shredded cheese (or Monterrey jack)


  1. Mix all of the ingredients for the tuna salad together in a tupperware container.  Allow the flavors to meld in the refrigerator for an hour or two (or overnight) if time allows.
  2. To make the wrap: spread tuna salad along the center of the wrap, leaving about an inch on each end. Layer tomato, bacon, and cheese along the top of the tuna.  Roll the ends and sides over and place either in a panini press, preheated to medium-high heat.  
  3. Cook for about 3-5 minutes, or until wrap is golden and cheese is melted. Slice in half (if desired) and serve immediately.

  5. While I'm not a huge tuna-lover, I think that this wrap sounds good (though it may be the bacon...)! I bet substituting chicken would taste just as good. Good luck with your final month of pregnancy!! :)
