A few days ago, i posted my spicy sriracha tuna wraps and today I’m going to show you how to enjoy the tuna wraps if you’re on a keto or low-carb diet.
The tuna salad begins with a mixture of albacore tuna, mayo (can be replaced with sour-cream, Greek yogurt, or mashed avocado), sriracha, onion and celery. Mix the tuna salad until creamy.
Next, place or Wrap the mixture into fresh lettuce leaves. You can also use romaine, butter, iceberg, or any type of green leaf lettuce. I find that romaine lettuce holds up the best. To top it all off, sprinkle with tomato, shredded cheese, olives, ranch, or your favorite toppings and enjoy!

To Make The Salad:
