One evening in the not so distant past, I came home from the aquatic center a bit late. I was flying solo that night, I think the hubs was out of town. I know this might shock you, but I was running out of daytime to actually cook, so I had to deviate from the planned menu.
Don't worry, my palms didn't sweat too heavily, and the hives went away the next day....
Lost, hungry and delirious, I was frantically looking for something not only healthy and tasty, but quick and easy. And then it hit me. Something so simple that I've had a dozen times, but never thought of as a dinner for one. Now it has become a go-to meal for me on nights when I need something on those really hectic nights.
Simple Tuna Wrap
1 3oz can of albacore tuna in water (I find these very handy and perfect serving, and Walmart carries the 3 packs)
1 Tbsp capers
1 oz soft goat cheese
1 Tbsp pesto
olives (I like kalamata)
salt and pepper
Drain tuna. Mix with a tad of olive oil, just enough to crumble and make the tuna moist. Add in capers and a little salt and pepper. Set aside.
Spread goat cheese over wrap, then the pesto. Layer the lettuce, then tuna, sundried tomatoes and olives. Roll, and then, well....eat it!
Hope's Note: This picture has banana peppers. I find that they take away from the taste combinations of the rest of the wrap. I advise against them, unless you really like banana peppers.
Hope's Note: Sub tuna with chicken if you like. This would also be good with smoked or grilled salmon if you happen to have it handy. I use tuna, mainly because it's there in my pantry and it's just a matter of opening the can!
