Turkey and Cucumber Wraps

March 10, 2012

I don’t know if you have noticed or not but I am in spring/summer mode.  I have officially declared winter over and am moving on towards spring!  One thing that I always notice happen this time of year is that I tend to consume a lot less food, especially processed and refined foods.  I have a tendency to make wiser meal choices when the weather warms up.  I don’t know exactly what causes this to happen.  Whether it is psychological or physiological, I am not certain but I know that at soon as my body feels warmer weather it cuts back on food.

These turkey and cucumber wraps are amazingly delicious!  They are light and so simple to make.  Do you like going on picnics or hikes in the spring and summer?  If so, you can pack the ingredients separately in a lunch box to roll up at lunchtime or serve the dressing on the side to avoid having a soggy wrap at meal time.  If you would like to cut back on calories try using a light or low-fat ranch dressing or none at all.

Turkey and Cucumber Wrap

1 (8-inch) whole wheat tortilla
1 leaf green leaf lettuce
1 ounce thinly sliced smoked turkey
1 slice cheddar cheese
6 thin slices cucumber
4 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 to 2 tablespoons low-fat ranch dressing

To Prepare

Arrange the tortilla on a large plate. Top with lettuce, turkey, cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes, then drizzle with dressing. Roll up and serve.

Makes 1 wrap

Whether for a picnic or just a regular lunch these wraps will satisfy you and keep you going for the entire afternoon 🙂

    We make wraps regularly for lunches on the road coming back from the cottage during the summer. We usually use leftovers such as BBQd chicken or pork. We try not to use cold cuts because of the chemicals and sodium.
