Salad Wraps

posted in Lunch, Soups, Salads, Sides and Sauces by Kathy Maister

Today I’m making Salad Wraps and — in less than 5 minutes — lunch will be ready!

Eating salad in a wrap, instead of on a plate with a knife and fork makes for a fun change of pace! I bought a complete salad in a bag and some flour tortilla wraps.

Flour tortilla wraps come in different flavors and in two different sizes. The smaller ones are about 8 inches in diameter and the larger ones are about 10 inches in diameter. I used the larger ones – one bag of salad greens will make three really big Salad Wraps!

Making and eating salad became so much easier when pre-washed salad greens became available at the grocery store. Buying pre-washed is a huge time saver, plus you can buy salad blends which include several types of salad greens all in one bag.

You may have noticed that complete salads are available in your grocer’s produce department. These salads include not only the greens, but can also include the dressing, shredded cheese, croutons, wonton strips or corn chips for crunch, and even dried fruit like raisins or cherries, all in one bag.

I bought a bag of salad that included baby spinach, a savory 3-cheese blend, focaccia bread croutons, and Sweet Dijon vinaigrette.

I put the baby spinach in a large bowl…

…then added the extras.

Using a pair of tongs I gave the salad a quick toss.

To make the wrap, I spread about 1/3 of the salad on a 10-inch wrap.

Folded over the sides…

…then the bottom. (Three hands would be great here!)

Now I’m ready to roll!

Be sure to roll your wrap tightly so that it won’t fall apart.

Keep the seam side down to keep it from unrolling.

You can also make a wrap with the top open. Spread the salad out on the tortilla.

Start by folding up the bottom…

…then fold over one side….

…and start rolling!

This way nothing will fall out the bottom of the wrap.

Lunch is ready!

Wasn’t it easy? It was all in the bag!
