What do you need for Tuna Pinwheels?
To prepare this Tuna Salad Roll-Ups, you need the following ingredients. You can find the correct amounts in the recipe card at the bottom of the blog:
- Tuna - Use canned tuna. You can buy this with olive oil, sunflower oil, or water. The end result doesn't matter much, but tuna in water is slightly slimmer.
- Tortilla wraps - Wheat wraps are used in this recipe. If you go for healthy, you can also take whole-wheat wraps. Do you want to use fewer carbohydrates? Then use carrot, pepper, or beet wraps.
- Mayonnaise - Makes a rich and creamy tuna salad. And you can also make it yourself with this homemade mayonnaise recipe.
- Curry - also known as curryketchup, currygewürz, or currygewürzketchup is a sauce widely eaten in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, and Denmark. It is a spicy, sweet variant of tomato ketchup. Do you want to make it yourself? Then take a look at this delicious curry recipe made from scratch.
- Italian herbs - This herb mix with parsley, oregano, chives, and basil gives a delicious taste to these tuna salad wrap snacks.
- Mixed Lettuce - This is a good choice for wraps because it stays crisp and fresher for longer. You can also replace it with arugula, which gives a light pepper taste.
- Cream cheese with herbs - fresh cream cheese with garlic and herbs. You can spread this well and also use it for cooking. We use it here as the base flavor on the tortillas.
How to prepare Cream Cheese and Tuna Wraps
You can find a printable recipe with a step-by-step description at the bottom of this blog.
- Make the tuna salad by mixing the drained tuna with mayonnaise, curry, and Italian herbs.
- Spread the top of a tortilla wrap with herb cheese and divide ⅓ of the tuna salad over the middle.
- Spread the mixed lettuce over it.
- Roll up the wraps and put them in the fridge for at least an hour. Then, cut them into small pieces (about ½ inch (1 cm) wide) and serve with tapas skewers.
Delicious on a platter accompanied by warm stuffed apricots with goat cheese and bacon, homemade chicken curry salad (for toast), or wraps. I often make wraps with chicken and cream cheese or smoked salmon wraps.
Tips, Substitutions, and Variations
- Warming tortilla - By briefly heating the tortilla in a dry frying pan, you can roll it better without them tearing. They don't have to be hot; a little warm (5 to 10 seconds on medium heat) is enough.
- In plastic rolls - Rolling the wraps in plastic and refrigerating for an hour will allow the flavors to blend well and keep the wrap in shape.
- Cut or for lunch - You can serve this wrap as a snack, but it is also delicious to eat for lunch (a very versatile recipe)!
- Do you want an extra slim snack? Then replace one tablespoon of mayonnaise with one tablespoon of Greek yogurt and use tuna in water instead of oil.
