Making Greek Salad Wraps

Hi everyone!

For some reason I’ve been craving Greek salad all week…so I decided to make these amazingly delicious Greek salad wraps.

Because I was aiming to keep the recipe as whole and clean as possible, I used whole grain wraps (which tend to be less flexible making the wrap a little more difficult to construct). BUT I figured out an easy way to make sure the wrap folds easily and doesn’t fall apart 🙂 So here it goes…

Here are all of the ingredients I used:

First, I cut up the tomatoes, cucumber, and olives.

Then, I prepared the dressing. It’s important not to make too much dressing or else the wrap will be soggy and fall apart. The dressing includes the juice from 1/4 of a lemon, a drizzle of olive, salt & pepper to taste, and a sprinkle of oregano.

After mixing the dressing, I added a small handful of arugula to the bowl along with the tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and feta.

Then, I mixed the salad so that the dressing was evenly dispersed throughout 🙂

In order to slightly soften the wrap, I placed it on a plate and microwaved it for 10 seconds. Then, I spread about a tablespoon of hummus on the wrap.

Then add the salad on top 🙂

So the first step in making the wrap easier to construct was heating the tortilla for 10 seconds. The next step is placing the wrap on tin foil and using the foil to help keep the wrap together. When folding the wrap, I first fold the right and left side of the tortilla inward. Then, I continue to wrap from the bottom pushing the salad inside as I wrap. Once the greek salad wrap is made, I then wrap the lower half in the tin foil to prevent it from breaking or falling apart.
