PS- Big love to everyone for their support here– I have been humbled, astounded and SO THANKFUL!!!!! T minus 15 days until they arrive in your mailbox!
I had intentions to share this easy recipe two weeks ago, however, my stupid camera ate my old photos so I needed to re-shoot and re-eat and go OPA!
The reason for me wanting to share it two weeks ago is because of the same theme as Monday’s post- A birthday! One of my oldest blogging friends ever Kelly!!! Although we can all collectively agree that she doesn’t look a day past 23.
Wait, 22. I have that stupid Taylor Swift song in my head.
I wanted to share a recipe which reflects Kelly, within some parameters. I then remembered that it’s Kelly, so as long as there is cheese (feta), bread (the Flatout flatbread wrap!) and wine (…balsamic vinegar), then our bases will be covered. Oh, and it will be packaged in a brown Trader Joe’s bag.
I’ve loved sharing Flatout flatbread recipes on here, most of them usually being sweet. These baked pita chips have been a huge hit, along with these cake batter breakfast wraps. I did share a spicy chicken wrap and even spent a whole day eating Flatout flatbreads.
I was pretty stoked to find out the Flatout have been named the official flatbread for Weight Watchers! Ironically, I’m quite familiar with the Weight Watchers program, as a close family member successfully lost over 50 pounds by following it!
Weight Watchers promote on not depriving yourself, and able to enjoy everything in moderation. They also promote smart swaps, smart choices and filling up on the good stuff! This, in combination with the Flatout Flatbread had my foodie wheels turning.
When I think of a Greek salad, I think of the best parts of it- The creamy feta cheese, the salty black olives, and the simple olive oil based dressing. Before you roll your eyes and think this is a calorie and sodium bomb, let’s take a step back and take a closer look.
Feta cheese, black olives, and olive oil ARE calorie dense. At the same time, they only need a small portion in any dish or recipe to be satisfied and add delicious flavor. Excluding the one time I went to a traditional Greek restaurant (where they literally added a block of feta to the salad), I’ve always enjoyed these three ingredients in small amounts. When added to fresh salad veggies, the creaminess, saltiness, and textures are evenly distributed to produce the best flavor combination.
You may have noticed I didn’t recommend a fat-reduced feta cheese or omitting the olive oil. I’m not sure if anyone else has tried reduced-fat feta cheese, but it’s honestly not even worth eating- It’s chalky, bland and has a pretty poor texture. You are best to stick with the real deal so no flavor is sacrificed.
These wraps are super simple to prepare, and can even be done in advance- In fact, I recommend prepping it the night before for all the flavors to mesh together and be evenly distributed! All you need are some chopped cucumber, tomatoes, onions (I kind of went light on this…not a huge fan of onion breath), olives and some of your favorite feta cheese (I recommend Greek or Bulgarian) and mix well. Then, you’ll drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and let it refrigerate overnight! All you need to do is the next morning, wrap it up in your favorite Flatout Flatbread (gluten free friends, Flatout make a delicious one too- Check your stores to see if it’s available!) and voila- A filling, healthy and low calorie/high flavor wrap to keep you satisfied and happy!
