As the weather starts to warm up, it would be nice to have a few great meals that don’t require much effort or time in the kitchen.  This recipe for Fruited Tuna Salad Pitas came from my recent issue of Simple and Delicious.  It is perfect for those kind of days.  I have had a sweet tuna salad before with fruit in it and loved it, so I figured I would also enjoy this version.  It was tasty.

My family turned their nose up at it at first but loved it once they had their first bite.  My husband is not a fan of mandarin oranges and he didn’t mind them at all in this dish.  Light and refreshing, perfect for those I don’t want to cook nights!  The salad is intended to be put on a whole pita and eaten like a taco.  However, it would also work well inside a pita pocket if you’d prefer.  You could  place them on the flat bread recipe I have shared before.  You could even substitute chicken for the tuna too.

Here is how you make the
