Wraps are the perfect lunch sandwich. I keep strips of grilled chicken and roasted turkey breast in the freezer to make our favourite wraps. Fresh picked garden greens and herbs are one of our favourite toppings. I have been experimenting with flavoured tortillas so we've had some interesting combinations.

Grilled Chicken Wrap
I used a sundried tomato and basil tortilla to make this wrap.

It was topped with a little mayonnaise, chinese mustard leaves, chives, basil, tomatoes, a little Catellina dressing and cheddar cheese. I am anxiously waiting for our first ripe tomatoes from the garden. While this tomato looked ok it had almost no flavour. The chinese mustard gave the wrap a nice zing that went well with the other flavours. The basil brought out the hint of basil in the tortilla.

Once all the toppings were on, the tortilla was folded to form the wrap. I find the mayonnaise helps with the folding process. I fold up the two ends along the narrow part of the toppings towards the centre. Then I take one open side and fold it over the topping pulling the toppings in tightly. Finally, I finish rolling the wrap. I like cutting the wraps in the middle on a bit of a diagonal for a nice presentation.

Roasted Turkey Wrap
This wrap was made using a pesto garlic tortilla.

The toppings were mayonnaise, romain lettuce, onions, tomatoes and cheddar cheese. I made a platter of these for a get together we were hosting. They were a huge success!
