Greek Salad Wrap
Considering the record breaking heat these past few weeks, it may surprise you that summer doesn’t officially start until tomorrow. In honor of the season, I have a great summer wrap to provide a brief respite from the heat.
4 Flat Bread We used Lavash from whole foods. It’s great for wraps, but it tends to dry out after a few days, at which point it splits very easily. So use it prompty, or substitue your favorite wrapping medium.
1 Head Iceberg Lettuce Shredded. I know, iceberg is a bit pedestrian. However, it has the best cold crisp crunch of any easy-to-find lettuce, and that crispy crunch is what this wrap is all about. Substitute at your own risk.
1 or 2 Tomatoes Chopped, anyway you like.
1 tub (4-6oz) Feta Crumbled.
6 oz Tzatziki Recipe to follow.
- Assembly is easy. You could throw it all in the wrap and be done, but my preference is to put a small handful of the lettuce in a bowl with a tablespoon or two of Tzatziki and a tablespoon or two of feta. Toss to coat. I prefer this method because the real magic happens somewhere in the combination of the yogurt sauce and the feta, and I want to make sure I get a little bit of that in every bite.
- Pile the dressed lettuce into the wrap, top with tomatoes, and anything else that strikes your fancy, extra lemon juice, a bit of pepper, etc., then roll it up and enjoy.

Yield: (4 servings)
6 oz Greek Yogurt We used Chobani Lowfat plain.
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice Adjust according to taste. I used about a half a lemon.
1 clove Garlic Crushed then finely chopped.
½ tbsp Fresh Dill This is a problematic ingredient in my opinion. The fresh taste is key, but you use so little of it that it seems like a waste to buy a whole bundle at the store. I don’t have a good solution for this, other than growing your own (which is what I did), but if you buy a bundle of dill, you should know that if it’s not treated, the unused potion should keep for a while in the fridge. Just trim the stems and put it in some water.
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cucumber none Now, Purists will cry foul as cucumber is generally an essential component of Tziziki. However, Melissa doesn’t care for the taste, so I left it out. I think our results were great, but You should judge for yourselves whether you want it or not.
- Place everything in a food processor and pulse until thuroughly mixed.
