A Tuna Transformation...

If there is anyone out there who gets excited at the thought of tuna, raise your hand. That's what I thought... dry, stinky fish has it's place, but there is only so much you can take. Well, shake of those old tuna chains and get a pita full of this!!! Total tuna transformation! I'm not real big on tuna-fish normally, and I'm always looking for a way to disguise it. I could eat this any night! The sweetness is gentle and PERFECT- even the kids liked it! The nuts and cranberries are a must! (Don't cut corners on this one!) Just a great colorful collection! I'll be making this one again soon! Got this on the table in no time- a good one for a busy night!

Fruited Tuna Salad Pitas (Simple and Delicious)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
1 can (12 ounces) white water-packed tuna, drained
1 can (11 ounces) mandarin oranges, drained
1 medium apple, chopped
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1 celery rib, thinly sliced
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 whole wheat pita breads (6 inches)
2-3/4 cups alfalfa sprouts

In a large bowl, combine mayonnaise and honey. Stir in the tuna, oranges, apple, pecans, celery, cranberries and salt. Serve on pita breads with sprouts. Yield: 4 servings.

(I was filled up on one pita half, for what it's worth. :)

This reminds me of a chicken salad sandwich--but a good way to disguise and sneak in the tuna. Thanks!
