Greek Salad Wrap

Fresh Greek salad fixin’s stuffed into a portable wrap.

Greek Salad Wrap

I stuffed everything good about a Greek salad into a whole wheat wrap. Hello, portable lunch!

Greek Salad Wrap

This recipe was inspired by an on-the-go wrap I picked up at The Fresh Market a few weeks ago. The wrap was busting at the seams and packed with everything you would find in a Greek salad. There were huge hunks of tangy feta, fresh, crisp lettuce, salty kalamata olives, sweet tomatoes, and shaved cucumbers. It was one of the best wraps I’ve ever eaten.

After dissecting it once I got back to the office, I knew it could be easily recreated at home for more than half the cost.

Sold!

Since I gave up meat for lent, I’ve been eating veggies like they’re going out of style. I love a good salad, but being a vegetarian is more than just salads.

I didn’t realize at first, but there are endless possibilities when it comes to cooking with veggies.

Greek Salad Wrap

Just last week I made roasted veggie bowls with a tahini dressing. Talk about amazing! I quickly inhaled two bowls before going back for a third.

Now that the weather is warmer, I’m beginning to crave lighter, fresh meals. It doesn’t hurt that this meal comes together in a total of 5 minutes. Now that the weather is warmer, I have better things to do than spend a hours hovering over a pot at the hot stove.

Greek Salad Wrap

This wrap requires very little effort. Pile all the goods on a whole wheat wrap. Fold in the two sides and roll it up tight. Slice. Eat.

    This perfect for our hot weather in Palm Springs. Light, all my favorite ingredients, and quickly made! Love the photos. The green glass reminds me of some my parents had growing up that we could never use.

      I live off salads and wraps during the warmer months. That glass was handed down to me from my grandmother. I believe she found them at a yard sale. Thanks, Christy!

    Yum, this looks wonderful! You are so right about veggies being limitless, I always start with them as my base, and then go from there. I have made hundreds of unique meals and I love it. So good for training too, they keep my body strong and healthy to handle the high mileage :)

    if there’s one thing i know about myself, it is this: greek salad is one of my dessert island foods. i could eat it all the time, and i would never tire of it.

    and you just made mine portable. that means it’ll work SUPER well on a dessert island.
