Salad Wrap- A 10 Minute Affair

I love making my own tortillas and chapatis. It takes slightly more time for making them from scratch than opening the plastic bag of store bought stuff, but the tastes is certainly rewarding! Easy as 1-2-3! Flour, water, salt, a bit of muscle force- and voila- you have a perfect wrap ready to welcome any stuffing. You can wrap in almost anything...let the sky be the limit to your imagination!
This time I thought I would give it a try with a salad! It is easy to eat the salad off the plate, but how much easier it is to have it wrapped in a cozy tortilla! Especially if you are on the run!
It takes about 10 minutes to prepare the whole thing (granted you already have the tortilla or chapatti), and you have a healthy, delicious and crunchy snack in minutes!

If you do not have the ready made chapatis, it is really easy to make them from scratch! Flour, water, salt, a bit of muscle force- as I said before!

Get ready:

For 4 servings you will need:
  • 4  whole medium sized  wheat tortillas or chapatis
  • 1 carrot- julienned
  • 1/2 cucumber, julienned
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 4 green onion sprouts
  • 4 parsley strands
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper
  • olive oil
  • Place 1 tortilla or chapati flat on a surface
  • Place a lettuce leaf on the upper half of it, as you face it
  • Place little of carrot, cucumber, red and green bell pepper, green onion and parsley
  • Sprinkle with olive oil, season with salt and black pepper
  • Fold the lower half over the upper half, and wrap the tortilla to form a cone shaped wrap
  • As a variation, place all the ingredients, including the seasoning, in a row starting from the lower half working towards the upper half, as you face it
  • Wrap tightly to form a tube, then cut diagonally to obtain two wraps
  • Salad wrap ready in minutes, enjoy!
