Greek Yogurt Tuna Salad Lettuce Wraps

Yogurt Tuna Salad (1)

Tuna is a favorite at our house, even though my younger daughter and I are the only ones who like it in the old school, traditional tuna salad variety. Still, we all know how boring tuna salad can get after a while, right?

So, every once in a while, when you find an interesting looking tuna salad variation, you just have to try it. That’s what happened to me when I was browsing through Crazy Cat Girl’s blog the other day and came across her Easy Lunch to Go: Greek Yogurt & Tuna Stuffed Tomatoes recipe. You can check out her original recipe by clicking on that link.

I used it as a springboard to come up with my own variation (mostly because I didn’t have any tomatoes or scallions, so I had to substitute something!). Here’s my variation:
