Love Salad? Try Wrapping it up!

The Diva here to share one of my favorite lunch recipe secrets! Now, we all love salad, well maybe not all of us, but we know it's super great for us, but eating the same old boring salad over and over again gets old fast. So I love to wrap it up! That's right, you can turn any salad into a lovely wrap for lunch. This is a healthy, portion-controlled choice! I love eating my wraps with soup. My favorite wrap to make is a version of a Greek salad. I use a goat feta cheese combined with lettuce, tomato and bell pepper, but you can add any veggies you want. Or, for a protein boost, you can add turkey. The key to this recipe is warming the tortillas and the lemon juice & olive oil. So wrap it up and give it a try! Here's my recipe:

Domestic Diva's Greek Salad Wrap

1 whole wheat tortilla (I use my fav spelt tortillas)
1 tbsp hummus
1/4 cup lettuce

1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
sliced in half
1/4 cup bell pepper diced
1 tbsp goat feta cheese

1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice

salt and pepper


Warm the tortilla in a cast iron pan or other pan.

Remove from heat and place on a plate. Spread the hummus on the wrap.

Top with the lettuce, tomatoes & bell pepper.

Crumble the feta cheese on top. Then, squeeze the lemon juice over the veggies, drizzle the olive oil and had a pinch of salt and pepper.

Wrap it up, securing the sides with toothpicks. Slice in half and enjoy!
