Curried Tuna Pita Pockets
10 mins (prep 10)
14 ingredients
2-3 servings
A crunchy flavor packed tuna salad that would work great for lunch or a light supper. The original recipe first appeared in Jolie Warner's "take a can of tuna" and as presented includes my modifications. What distinguishes this recipe is the addition of fresh basil which adds a sweet grassy flavor in contrast to the heat of the curry. Serve sandwiches with a crispy salad and enjoy. You could also turn this into an entree salad and serve pita wedges on the side. As presented, this is intended to be eaten shortly after preparation. If you are planning to chill it a few hours, I would suggest scaling back the curry powder as the flavor grows stronger and overshadows the other flavors in the salad.
