"Very good. Couldn't find alfalfa sprouts......Kroger doesn't sell them anymore due to health issues or whatever. But the salad was still really tasty in the pita!"

"This was really good I make it at least twice a week in summer. Sometimes when I don't have tuna or for those who do not like tuna I use chicken it is always very good just the right combination of fruit and tuna/chicken canned chunk chicken works wonderful."

"This was very good. Nice light dressing. Good combination of ingredients. I did not use pecans (wife allergy), or sprouts (do not like). I found the mixture "runny". I drained the oranges and tuna. May have to try drying oranges with paper towels. Will definitely make again...great summer dish."

"these are excellent for a quick dinner or lunch. if I make them the day before, I pack the tuna salad and pitas (or whole wheat tortillas!) separately so the wrap doesn't get soggy. definitely making again - this weekend in fact! :)"

"Made it to share at a covered dish gathering and everyone liked it. Served it on lettuce. Skipped the sprouts (didn't have on hand.) Excellent."

No rating since I have not tried it. Just a question: Is the nutrition information accurate on this recipe. The calories and fat grams per serving seem very high to me. Is there somewhere I can go to learn how to compute the information for myself?

Hi Pwatts,
Believe it or not - there is 180 calories in 2 Tbsp of full fat mayonnaise (which is what is in each sandwich, roughly) and 170 calories in your average 6" whole wheat pita.  That gives you 350 calories before you ever get to the goodness of the sandwich!  You can absolutely substitute lower fat and lower calorie ingredients to make this recipe lighter though without sacrificing the goodness.

"Made this as a light lunch for a friend and I. Very easy! Delicious and refreshing! It became quite the rave when I took some to work for friends to try there. Looking forward to making it again. A very pleasant change from plain, old tuna salad."

"Total tuna transformation! I'm not real big on tuna-fish normally, and I'm always looking for a way to disguise it. I could eat this any night! The sweetness is gentle and PERFECT- even the kids liked it! The nuts and cranberries are a must! (Don't cut corners on this one! Just a great colorful collection! I'll be making this one again soon!"
