Kalamata Veggie Wrap

Enjoy this fresh, healthy veggie wrap for a filling lunch -- or to impress your guests with an impromptu meal. Having recently discovered the versatility of the kalamata olive as a "secret ingredient," I created my own kalamata wrap to exploit these little delights.

Ingredient portions are approximate; adjust to meet your own preferences or dietary restrictions. My wraps tend to overflow -- have a fork handy so you don't waste a bit of fresh goodness!

Note: If you aren't able to find jalapeño ranch dressing at your local grocery, it's easy to make your own. Start with a good ranch dressing base, and mix with an equal amount of jalapeño salsa.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole wheat soft flatbread or wrap
  • 2 leaves Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 medium avocado, chopped
  • 1/4 cup tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 cup soft goat cheese, chopped or chunked
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives, sliced or chopped
  • jalapeno ranch dressing
  • Himalayan sea salt
  • black pepper, freshly ground
  1. Spread a thin layer of jalapeno ranch dressing on a whole wheat wrap.
  2. Chop or dice your fresh ingredients: romaine lettuce, red onion, tomato, and avocado. If you prefer, tear the lettuce into quarters and layer them over the dressing.
  3. Slice or chop a handful of kalamata olives.
  4. Spread all ingredients in a thin layer across the wrap. Add sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  5. Splash more jalapeno ranch dressing across the top.
  6. Top with crumbled or chopped goat cheese. You may substitute feta cheese if you prefer.
  7. Roll wrap up and secure ends with toothpicks.

      Thank you, Peachpurple! I haven't tried it with coleslaw but I know that flavor combination would work well -- kalamata olives are a great addition to colesaw, also. Hmmm ... now you've got me thinking of a coleslaw-olive-cucumber wrap ... Thank you for your comment and that great idea!

      Wow this look delicious. I've never seen jalapeno ranch dressing here in Ontario but I'll be on the lookout for it.

      Thank you for your comment and your welcome, Susan. The brand of jalapeño ranch I buy is Litehouse, which is in the produce coolers of the grocery (no preservatives). Do try blending your own, though -- it turns out well if you avoid the sweet ranch dressings and the sweeter varieties of salsa.
