We think of tuna salad as a blank canvas, just waiting to have a never-ending variety of flavors and textures mixed in. Often, we’ll have a meal that we love and try to translate those same flavors and textures into a new version of tuna salad. That’s pretty much how we came up with this recipe. We ate a nori wrap and thought it would be great with tuna salad. Then we ate maple-mustard salmon and thought it would be great in a nori wrap. Thus, the Honey-Mustard Tuna Salad Nori Wrap was born.
Oh, and juuuust in case you’re wondering what nori is, it’s those thin sheets of seaweed paper that you often find rolled around sushi. These days, nori is more widely available at traditional supermarkets (usually found in the Asian section) as well as at Asian markets, Whole Foods, and online. We love its mild flavor and the fact that it keeps for a long time in the pantry, just waiting to be filled with your latest creation.
These wraps are great served with veggies and hummus or a bowl of soup.
Honey-Mustard Tuna Salad Nori Wrap
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
Pinch sea salt
Pinch dried thyme
1/2 cup diced cucumber
1/2 cup diced carrot
1 5-ounce can Bumble Bee Solid White Albacore, drained and flaked
4 large nori wraps
Whisk together first six ingredients (mayonnaise through thyme). Stir in cucumber and carrot and coat with dressing. Gently stir in tuna until just mixed. Spread 1/4 of the tuna mixture onto one side of each nori wrap and then roll up like a burrito. If your nori wraps are cracking, you can mist lightly with water to soften.
