Curry Tuna Salad and Fruit Radicchio Wraps

A delightful finger food salad.

Radicchio Tuna Salad

Have you ever checked out the specialty section in the produce department for unusual fruits and veggies?

Often times this section has various hot peppers, tomatillos, Japanese eggplant, lemon grass, and radicchio.

The radicchio always catches my eye because it’s so pretty. 

Generally I find that radicchio is on the bitter side when it’s in a salad but the texture and size of the leaves seems so perfect to use as a small “bowl” or wrap for a salad.

In this recipe, radicchio is a “bowl” or wrap for tuna salad that’s made with a bit of curry powder and chopped cilantro.

Then pieces of red pear and kiwi fruit are added for a touch of sweetness.

The combination of flavors works well together for a little sweet and a little savory in each bite.

Serve these colorful wraps for an appetizer, lunch or a light main dish.

  4. This really does put a great spin on the traditional tuna salad! The use of curry was a smart choice for the salad, it definitely amps up the flavor quite a bit. Also the crunchy and tart fruits on top are an excellent touch. Great post-yum!

  5. The addition of kiwi fruit here is a cool idea, especially with the curry powder in the mix.
