4 tbs extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt/fresh ground pepper
butter lettuce
Toss together tuna with red onion, red pepper, capers, olives, hot peppers, sun dried tomatoes and parmesan. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Line wraps with butter lettuce. Spread a generous amount of filling into the centre and roll up, folding the ends inside. Wrap wraps in parchment paper and pack in totes with freezer packs to keep cold until lunchtime.

Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and additional olive oil. Season. Cool completely. Chop vegetables more finely. Fold in mayo.
Spread each wrap with 2 tsp Boursin cheese. Follow directions as above.
