I made these wraps on a really warm day recently, and it made such a nice summer meal! They have lots of good and healthy things in them…lean turkey, a mix of baby spinach and lettuce, julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes (from an oil-packed jar), and cucumber strips. All wrapped up in a Tomato-Basil flour tortilla.
I modified a recipe that I had found at Kraft Foods, adding cheese and using sun-dried tomatoes instead of roasted red peppers, although those would be great in this, too. And I used a Tomato-Basil tortilla, but you can use your favorite kind.
SUN DRIED TOMATO TURKEY WRAP by NancyCreative, adapted from Kraft Foods
Makes 2 wraps
2 (8″) flour tortillas (I used a tomato-basil flavored tortilla)
1 Tablespoon light mayonnaise
2 teaspoons light zesty Italian dressing
2 slices of Muenster or Provolone cheese, optional
3/4 cup baby spinach leaves (or a salad mix of half spinach leaves and half spring mix)
10 very thin slices of deli-style oven-roasted turkey breast
1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber strips
1/4 cup julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes in oil (or substitute roasted red pepper strips)
Sliced kalamata olives or slivered red onions, optional
Mix mayonnaise and Italian dressing; spread over tortillas. Put a slice of cheese in the center of each tortilla. Top evenly with remaining ingredients and roll up tightly–the key to a well-wrapped wrap is to layer the ingredients evenly and wrap tightly–something I still need to improve on! 🙂 Cut each wrap in half and serve with a salad or other simple side dish.

With the Super Bowl coming up, you may be looking for some ideas on tasty finger foods and appetizers you can serve. This is a great recipe I found at Kraft Foods. I added a little more cheese, some chopped green onions, and fresh cilantro–if you use these, make sure you chop them very finely so the tortillas will roll up nice and smooth (I didn’t chop my green onion stems fine enough, so my filling was a little bumpy, but they tasted good!) These Salsa Roll-Ups are really easy to make and just about everyone loves them! You can make the roll-ups a few hours ahead of time if you want and then cover and refrigerate them until you’re ready to serve. This recipe makes about 20 to 24 roll-ups, so you’ll want to double the recipe if you’re making this for a larger group.
SALSA ROLL-UPS by NancyC, adapted from Kraft Foods
4 oz. (1/2 of an 8-oz. package) cream cheese or light cream cheese, softened
3 Tablespoons salsa (use your favorite kind–I used a “Lime and Garlic” flavored salsa)
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
4 (6-inch) flour tortillas (or substitute 3 (8-inch) tortillas–I like to use the spinach, sun-dried tomato, or whole wheat flavors)
3/4 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese or Fiesta/Mexican blend cheese
Optional: 2 green onion stems, finely chopped (you need to finely chop these so the tortillas will roll up better!)
Optional: 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
In small bowl, mix softened cream cheese and salsa together until well blended. Add chili powder and blend well.
Spread cream cheese mixture evenly onto the tortillas. Top each tortilla evenly with shredded cheese, green onion, and cilantro. Roll up tortillas tightly (they’ll cut into slices much better if you roll them tightly). Trim the ends of each rolled tortilla about 1/2″ to 1″, and cut each tortilla into 5 slices for 6″ tortillas, or 8 or 9 slices for 8″ tortillas.
Arrange on a platter and serve. Makes 20 to 24 roll-ups.
