Festive Tuna Roll-Ups

Bright red or green pepper rings dress up this easy appetizer made from familiar ingredients. Keep the fat content low by choosing tuna packed in water rather than oil.

Serves: 8


  • 1 6-ounce can white tuna in water, drained and flaked
  • 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
  • 4 tortillas, spinach (green), tomato (red), or whole-wheat
  • 8 dill pickle spears
  • 4 carrots, shredded
  • 8 pepper rings, green or red 


  1. Mix tuna and mayonnaise in a small bowl.
  2. Lay out each tortilla. Spread tuna in a line down the center of each. Top tuna with 2 pickles per tortilla and carrots.
  3. Roll each tortilla burrito-style; keep closed by wrapping 2 pepper rings around each tortilla.
  4. Cut each rollup in half and center pepper ring on each half.

Always wipe the blade(s) of a can opener after using it on tuna or any other canned item.
