    Whether you need a quick lunch at home or something to brown-bag, this tasty wrap will delight you and your family. The combination of fresh veggies here is only a suggestion. Feel free to fill your wraps with any veggies you have on hand.

    • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise*
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
    • 4 eight-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas
    • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves, washed and dried with stems removed
    • 1 small ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and cut into slices
    • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
    • 1 medium carrot, cut into strip
Instructions

 

  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice, and lime peel.
  2. Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 15-20 seconds on high to make them easier to roll. Spread each tortilla evenly with the mayonnaise mixture.
  3. Arrange the spinach leaves on top of each tortilla, then the avocado slices, bell pepper, and carrots.
  4. Roll the tortillas up tightly. Place the seam sides down on the serving plates.
  5. *NOTE: As an alternative to the mayonnaise-lime mixture, use a prepared hummus, yogurt-cucumber dip, low-fat flavored cream cheese, salsa, baba ghanoush, or mustard.
  6. OTHER OPTIONS: Try arugula instead of spinach. Add any type of bean, grated zucchini, tomatoes, shredded cabbage, onions, mushrooms, and/or chopped cucumbers.
