  5. Drain the pasta and peas

Caesar Turkey Wraps

November15

Wildtree Caesar Turkey Wrap

Summary: Wildtree Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 packaged of prepared Wildtree Classic Caesar Dressing Mix, #10777, blended according to package directions using Mayonnaise and Milk.
  • 1/2 pound deli Turkey or Chicken
  • 1 head Romaine Lettuce, chopped
  • 1 cup Croutons
  • Red peppers or other Veggies – optional
  • 4 Flour Tortillas, 8” each

Instructions

  1. In a medium-size bowl, toss lettuce with Caesar Dressing and croutons till combined
  2. Lay a tortilla on a flat surface
  3. Top tortilla with about ¾ cup of salad mix
  4. Lay 3 slices of turkey/chicken on top of salad
  5. Add red peppers or other veggies, if desired
  6. Fold right and left sides of tortilla toward the middle
  7. Then fold bottom of tortilla towards top and over the filling, making sure to keep sides tucked in
  8. Roll up & cut wrap into two pieces
  9. Repeat with remaining tortillas

Notes:

The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese, adding 764 grams of Sodium. I recommend adding just a sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese (about 80 mg of Sodium per tablespoon), or eliminating it all together. This wrap still tastes good without the Parmesan Cheese.
