Wasabi Tuna Pitas

Wasabi Tuna Pitas

Wasabi powder, the Japanese version of horseradish, adds sharp, fiery flavor to this tuna salad. Look for this condiment in the Asian section or spice aisle of large supermarkets. If you don't have wasabi, you may substitute 2 teaspoons of horseradish. Or simply omit the wasabi for a traditional tuna salad.
