by Deborah (Newtown, PA)
Combine a can of tuna, chunks of a tart apple (Granny Smith is good) and mayo. Combine and pack separately from pitas. After a hike or when you get to your picnic site spoon the mix into the pitas and enjoy!

Tuna Melt Wrap

Use a tortilla for your wrap. Layer cheese slices, tuna salad or plain tuna, lettuce and cucumber slices. Microwave 15-30 seconds to melt cheese slightly. Roll up and eat!
