Avocado and Feta Cheese Salad Wraps

As wrappers for this savory mixture, this colorful luncheon or supper dish borrows flour tortillas from Tex-Mex cooking. Present the tortillas open, and let guests or family members do the wrapping up themselves. Offer corn or tortilla soup to start, and a butterscotch pudding or flan for dessert.

Ingredients: 

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
1 ripe avocado, seeded and diced
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
Ingredient Line: 
½ cup sliced scallions
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. soy "bacon" bits
Ingredient Line: 
¼ cup sunflower seeds, preferably toasted
Ingredient Line: 
2 Tbs. fat-free soy mayonnaise
Ingredient Line: 
16 grape tomatoes
Ingredient Line: 
1 cup shredded leaf lettuce plus half head for garnish
Ingredient Line: 
4 8-inch low-fat plain or flavored flour tortillas

Instructions: 

  1. Preheat oven to broil.
  2. Put diced avocado into a mixing bowl, and stir in feta cheese, lime juice and black pepper. Add scallions, “bacon” bits, sunflower seeds and soy mayonnaise, stirring gently to combine. Stir in grape tomatoes and shredded lettuce.
  3. Spray tortillas lightly with nonstick cooking spray, and heat in oven until softened, for about 30 seconds. Remove from oven, and place each tortilla on individual plates.
  4. To serve, line each tortilla with whole lettuce leaf, and mound salad mixture on top.

Wine Suggestions

Tangy feta cheese and tart lime juice give these wraps a little attitude, so you’ll want a wine that will balance these flavors but will also go nicely with the rich silkiness of the avocado. A chilled Barboursville Sauvignon Blanc from Virginia would be a good choice.

Comments on this Recipe

My brothers girlfriend is a vegetarian and a bunch of us are getting together tomarrow night and making dinner at my house so I'm looking for something we will all like. Since us girls are not too into mayonnaise, we are using Italian Dressing instead and we are just cooking strips of bacon to for the guys. I'm excited.
