Most of the time, my recipes are well thought out, planned in advance, and tested on my family a few times before sharing them here on the blog. Other times I literally walk into the kitchen because I’m starving and need a quick lunch and end up whipping up something so delicious that I have to wait to eat it so I can photograph it and write down the recipe so I won’t forget it.

This was one of the latter.

I mean, it’s tuna salad right? Not much you can do with tuna salad. Wrong. Oh, so wrong.

It was a rainy Tuesday and I walked in the kitchen, distracted by the rumble of thunder in the distance. Or the rumble in my tummy, one can’t be sure. Anyway a quick rummage through my neglected pantry brought forth cup of noodles and tuna. I chose the lesser of two evils and set to work, determined to make the best tuna salad I’d ever eaten.

This is not the tuna salad of your childhood folks. This is grown up tuna salad right here. Tuna, celery and mayo are married with sour cream, dill, chives, parsley, fresh cracked black pepper and lots of lemon. As if that wasn’t good enough I wrapped it up in some crunchy lettuce leaves. These Tuna Salad Lettuce Wraps are my new favorite lunch, and I bet they’ll be yours, too.
