Salad In A Wrap Recipe


Salad in a Wrap

Be sure to choose a whole grain wrap. You have a lot of choices and many brands offer a low carb alternative. Grains give you the needed fiber to digest food.

Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They can also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.

Spinach is low in Saturated Fat, and also very low in Cholesterol. Spinach is also a good source of Niacin and Zinc, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

Tomatos provide an excellent amount of vitamin C and beta-carotene; a very good amount of the mineral manganese; and also a good amount of vitamin E.

Cucumbers are a valuable source of conventional antioxidant nutrients including vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese. Also cucumbers contain numerous flavonoid antioxidants, including quercetin, apigenin, luteolin, and kaempferol.


1 whole grain wrap (available at most health food stores and some grocery stores)
1/4 ripe avocado
1/4 cup spinach (chopped fine)
1/4 cup sweet red onion (diced)
1/4 cup ripe tomato (diced)
1/4 cup cucumber (diced)
1 small carrot(juillend)
1/4 cup carrot (shredded)
1/8 cup kalamata olives (optional)
1/8 cup pepperoncis
1/4 cup jicama(thinly sliced)
1/4 tsp oregano (or your favorite seasoning)
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil (or favorite dressing)
Pinch Celtic or Himalayan salt (optional)
Dash cayenne to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare all veggies.

Mash avocado, spread in the center of the wrap and add a sprinkle of citrus.

Add remaining ingredients and roll up wrap, tucking in ends as you roll.
You can vary the amounts of each vegetable or add or subtract different
veggies according to individual tastes or preferences. The sky is the limit.
