Making Wraps

Posted on: June 6, 2013

In the summer time my hubby loves a wrap for lunch. some days he will take salads too but wraps are one of his favourite foods! Apparently I make good ones as he’s had them at the wrap joints but mine are better! He’s no dummy! Here’s how you do it:


  • 10-12″ tortillas (spinach, white, gluten-free, WW etc)
  • spread such as mayo, spreadable cream cheeses or sour cream or Caesar dressing
  • mustard
  • lettuce (spring mix, iceberg, romaine chopped, even cole slaw mix will do)
  • tomato diced
  • cucumber sliced
  • shredded carrots
  • red onion sliced thin
  • meats (turkey, ham, salami, roast beef, chicken etc)
  • Cheese shredded any type even goat’s cheese!


  1. Warm your tortilla just enough so that it’s very pliable, maybe 15-30 sec. in microwave oven.
  2. Spread your entire tortilla with the spread of your choice. I like mayo but you have whatever you like. Get right to the edges now!
  3. Top this with your lettuce, enough to fill the center of the tortilla. Top that with any veggies you like such as tomatoes, cukes, carrots, beets, onions etc.
  4. Some people at this point may like a salad dressing over that veggie-ness but be careful not to use too much or you’ll end up with a soggy mess! I don’t put anything over the lettuce but salt and pepper!
  5. Top that with some shredded cheese, a little or a lot, you choose!
  6. Top that with your meat choices, maybe 3-5 thin slices.
  7. Squeeze some mustard, Dijon, honey or just plain mustard, over the meat.
  8. Now you are going to wrap it like a burrito. Fold the top up over the mix, now the sides in, and roll it tight.
  9. Now wrap it in saran wrap real tight unless eating it right away. They are good in the wrap for about 12 hours refrigerated.

This is one of my popular posts and recently I have been making lettuce wraps. I use leaf lettuce and use fillings like salad and or meats and roll like a burrito. You can make a thai dressing and use it as dip too for added fun! I have recipes for thai dips/dressings, use the search engine to the right to find the one you like! Just one more idea for the Ww wagon ride!
