Fresh and Colorful

I have lots of fresh ingredients in my fridge lately so to use them up I have been making lots of salads and wraps.  My wrap is nearly identical to my salad I posted last week.

I usually use lavash bread as the base which is a lower calorie, whole wheat tortilla in a rectangle shape.  They are huge and only 100 calories. I pick them up in the Wal-Mart bakery section for cheap. This week though, I got some multi-grain tortillas on sale at Hy-Vee so I have been using them. 
In the wrap I included:
  • Roasted red pepper hummus spread on the tortilla
  • Salmon
  • Arugula
  • Mixed baby greens
  • Feta cheese
  • Kalamata olives
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Cherry tomatoes
We ate this a few times over the weekend and I'm continuing this week at my lunch at work. A great way to get a good dose of vegetables to hit your daily servings!

In the somewhat near future I will post my recipe for a Greek pasta salad that I first made last winter. So good!


  1. YUM! I just bought a huge thing of Feta cheese and artichokes at Sam's club - this looks delish!

  2. This dish reminds NASA logo design history, which is funny! I just got very interested in the space themes lately.


Talk to me!
