Chef's Salad Wrap Sandwich Recipe
When my mother was teaching me to cook, two of the first foods that I learned to cook were Blue Cheese Dressing and Thousand Island Dressing. I can stand some of the blue cheese dressings that are in the jar, but I have never had a commercial Thousand Island Dressing that was worth eating. I adore homemade Thousand Island Dressing, and I am sharing my recipe with you. The pickle relish and grated egg make the islands. Don't skip the egg. It mellows the tartness of the catsup and pickle relish. When you have a hard-boiled egg, from gathering the ingredients, to making the dressing, the process will take less than 10 minutes.
Thousand Island Dressing Recipe
Ingredients and method:
In a small bowl, stir together ¼ cup of mayonnaise, ¼ cup of catsup, 1-2 tablespoons of pickle relish, and one grated egg. If you spray the measuring cup with non-stick spray, the mayo and catsup plop right out of the cup. Refrigerate, covered, after making the dressing. Consume this dressing within a day of making it. It does not freeze well.
Chef's Salad Wrap Sandwich Recipe
Ingredients: (Use the amount of each that you prefer.)
paratha (Indian flatbread) or flour tortilla
Thousand Island Dressing
shredded lettuce and mixed greens
finely chopped cauliflower crumbles
tomatoes (thinly sliced or chopped)
thinly sliced sweet onions
thinly sliced cucumbers
fully-cooked ham (thinly sliced or finely chopped)
grated hard-boiled egg
Heat the flatbread in an ungreased iron skillet until it is pliable. Place the flatbread on a plate. Down the middle of the flatbread, spread a 2 ½-inch wide stripe of Thousand Island dressing. Add a layer of shredded lettuce, and then add the other ingredients in order. Spread them across the area that is covered by the Thousand Island dressing. Pay attention to the amount of veggies and protein that you are adding. You want to be able to close the wrap! After you add all of the ingredients to the flatbread, drizzle some more Thousand Island dressing on top of the veggies and protein. Roll the flatbread, burrito style, and serve it with a steaming bowl of soup.
Don't be afraid to play with the ingredients! If you prefer Ranch to Thousand Island dressing, use that. Add your favorite Chef's Salad ingredients. Do you like olives, jalapenos, diced chicken, or beans? Add them! If there are ingredients that you don't like, just omit them. This is your special sandwich; make it just the way that you want it. Here are ideas for ingredients:
