Greek Salad Wraps

Greek Salad Wraps are awesome! What’s not to love about a wrap with Greek Salad inside? Yum, yum, yum! This one has romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, kalamata olives, red onion, green bell pepper, sliced pepperocinis and feta cheese along with a delicious dressing.

I thought about using my regular Greek Salad dressing for this recipe, but then thought the vinegar and oil would permeate the wrap too much so I decided to use Marie’s Creamy Caesar dressing instead. Not your typical Greek Salad dressing, but it’s rich and thick and tastes so well on salad that I thought I would give it a try.

I’ve been wanting to make these delicious wraps for some time now and finally got around to it last weekend. You know, almost anything you make as a salad can be put in a wrap and it turns out quite well with a different spin on some of your favorite foods. Greek Salad is one of our favorite foods and has been for some time.

I have several variations for Greek Salad already posted on my blog. There’s Greek Salad with Grilled Chicken and Bacon, Marinated Greek Salad, Mediterranean Salad, Greek Pasta Salad, Antipasto Salad, Marinated Squash and Tomato Salad, Tomato, Avocado and Mozzarella Salad, and Greek Tomato Salad. All of these fantastic recipes have a little different twist on my classic Greek Salad recipe.

I have a couple of recommendations if you decide to try this tasty recipe sometime. I used spinach wraps but they seemed a little on the fragile side. I would recommend using fajita size tortillas since they are thicker and more sturdy than wraps typically are. Also you may want to make sure you leave a one-inch border around the edge of the wrap/tortilla to make wrapping easier.

I used bamboo skewers to secure the wraps. Long, heavy-duty toothpicks may also work. I put a lot of veggies on my wrap, but you can always cut back if it is easier for you to roll up the wrap that way. Patience is the key to eating these flavorful wraps! My husband actually used a fork, but I ate them like a sandwich.

If you’re looking for a tasty way to get your kids to eat more veggies and salad, then consider presenting it in a wrap instead! Greek Salad Wraps are terrific and they don’t take all that long to make up–depending on whether or not you have to chop up the veggies. Marie’s dressing is wonderful and has a nice zip to it, but if you need something lower in calories, or you want a different taste, then use your favorite dressing.

Greek Salad wraps have all the wonderful ingredients you love in Greek salad but in a wrap instead.

Lots of tomatoes, olives, pepperocinis and feta cheese are in every bite.

Normally, this would be a low calorie meal, but Marie’s creamy caesar dressing is quite high in calories. Switch dressings if you are wanting your wrap to be lower in calories. I wanted to use up some manzanilla olives as well, so some of my wraps had those olives instead of kalamata olives in them.

 

Here’s what I did.

These are the ingredients I used for the Greek Salad Wraps.

Spread Marie’s Creamy Caesar Dressing over top of the wraps.

Add lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, green pepper, feta cheese, olives, and pepperocini in amounts you desire. This was a little too much for the wrap and I had to remove some from the edges.

Roll up wraps and secure with bamboo skewers or long heavy-duty toothpicks.

I highly recommend making these with fajita size tortillas instead as the tortillas will be thicker and not tear so easily. These spinach wraps were quite fragile.

They are not the easiest to eat and even a little messy, but they sure taste marvelous.

Serve Greek Salad Wraps with fruit or chips (or both). While Marie’s Creamy Caesar Dressing isn’t a traditional “Greek” salad dressing, it works really well with these ingredients.
