Mediterranean Tuna Salad in Radicchio Leave

My go to lunch……This low carb/high protein Mediterranean Tuna Salad is incredibly delicious and healthy. I serve it in radicchio leaves instead of bread to keep it low carb but you can make it into a sandwich if you desire.  

Be creative with this salad. You can mix up the ingredients. If you don't have any roasted peppers on hand, no problem, add in some chopped tomatoes. Make the recipe your own.
