A delightful tuna salad wrap.

Radicchio Tuna Salad on plate

Have you ever checked out the specialty section in the produce department for unusual or unique 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 hint of curry powder and chopped cilantro.

And 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 tuna salad wraps as an appetizer, lunch or a light main dish.
