  1. Combine tuna, pear, jicama, walnuts and pickle relish in medium bowl; stir in mayonnaise (adding more as needed for desired consistency).
  2. Cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
  3. When ready to serve, line pita pockets with romaine lettuce leaves; fill with tuna mixture or prepare the night before, wrap securely and take for a quick lunch the next day.
