How to make Greek wraps
You don’t need any cooking skills to make these wraps, seriously! Here’s how you make them. These salad wraps call for such Greek cooking staples as olives, feta cheese, and olive oil.
- Vegetables. I use finely chopped tomatoes and cucumbers, as well as sliced onions for these wraps. Use red onions for a milder flavor.
- Mixed greens. The greens add color, flavor, texture, and lots of nutrients to the wraps.
- Feta cheese. Would these even be called Greek wraps without feta cheese? This crumbled cheese adds a salty and tangy flavor to the wraps and pairs perfectly with the fresh vegetables and greens.
- Olives. I use black pitted olives for my wraps. You can also use Kalamata or green olives.
- Olive oil. A staple Greek ingredient that not only bonds all flavors but also adds healthy fats to the wrap and makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients.
- Balsamic vinegar. To add some acidity to the vegetables.
- Dried basil. To season the vegetables.
- Wraps. I use whole wheat tortillas for these wraps to keep them healthy.
Step 1 – Chop and season the vegetables
Chop the tomatoes, cucumbers, and onion. Add them to a mixing bowl along with sliced olives and crumbled feta cheese.
Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add dried basil and mix well.
Step 2 – Assemble and wrap
Lay out a whole wheat wrap and start layering the ingredients. Add the mixed greens and top them with the Greek salad mixture. Fold up and enjoy.
Like any good sandwich, you can easily customize every element of it, from the bread, to the filling, to the seasonings.
- Add protein. Adding protein to these wraps will turn them into a wholesome meal. Grilled chicken is a great option for these wraps. If you don’t eat animal protein, use chickpeas.
- Add a creamy component. Hummus, tzatziki sauce, and tahini will add great flavor and texture to the wraps. They are easy to make and pair well with these Greek salad wraps.
- Use pita bread. These wraps will feel even more Mediterranean when made with pita bread. If you have a few spare minutes, use this recipe to make your own flatbread.
- Use different wraps. Cut the carbs by using keto tortillas or egg wraps, or lower the calories by using low calorie wraps.
Once assembled, these wraps should be eaten as soon as possible to enjoy the fresh flavor and crunchy texture of the vegetables. With this said, you can wrap leftover wraps with clingfilm and store them in the fridge for 1-2 days.
The ingredients can be stored separately in airtight containers for up to 4 days.
To make these wraps vegan, skip the feta cheese. Add hummus or tzatziki sauce to the wraps to make up for the creaminess of the feta and don’t forget to salt the vegetables.
These wraps are not gluten-free as they are made with whole wheat tortillas. Use gluten-free tortillas if you have gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
Warm the tortilla wraps before using them to make them softer and more pliable. This will allow you to wrap more tightly, thus preventing the wraps from falling apart.
