Chopped Green Salad Wrap

January 26, 2012
I’ve received a lot of questions from readers about what I pack for lunches and snacks when I go to work each day. I’m not going to lie, I struggle just as much as the next person. But since I would much rather spend money going out to eat with my husband on date nights, taking a packed lunch and snacks is the norm. 
A few of my favorite snacks being:
          *Lara Bars (cashew cookie, peanut butter cookie, apple pie, and pb&j being my favorites)
          *Cliff Bars (peanut butter, white chocolate macadamia and carrot cake being my favorites)
          *Greek yogurt and canned pumpkin with a dollop of peanut butter
          *Apples or pears with a few slices of cheese
          *Sugar-free applesauce with granola 
Lunch, on the other hand, is much less predictable. Sometimes I’ll tote along leftovers from dinner the night before. Other times I’ll make a quick salad with quinoa and veggies or a salad topped with lentils and feta cheese. 
This week I was looking through my fridge, trying to get inspired, and saw we had whole wheat tortillas, lettuce, pesto, feta cheese and broccoli. Never one to be a fan of raw broccoli, I found that chopping the broccoli into small pieces and tossing it with the other ingredients helped to ward off the raw flavor that I typically dislike. 
The wrap was super tasty and satisfying. So if you’re looking for a new addition to your workday meals, I would totally give this a try.
Chopped Green Salad Wrap 
*1/2 cup Romaine lettuce, chopped 
*1/4 to 1/3 cup raw broccoli florets, finely chopped
*1 oz. crumbled feta cheese
*1 1/2 tbsp. Trader Joe’s Champagne Pear Vinaigrette or other fruit vinaigrette of your choice
*1 tablespoon purchased pesto 
*Cracked black pepper 
*1 whole wheat tortilla 
*In a small bowl, combine the lettuce, broccoli, feta cheese, vinaigrette, pesto and black pepper. Toss to combine all ingredients evenly. Spoon mixture onto tortilla. Enjoy!
Happy Cooking!

    I get so bored with the usual lunch and snack prep for work so I welcome any new ideas like this!

    That looks so delicious!! I end up bringing a salad to work about 4 days a week. It can get a little old, but like you said, I’d rather spend money on something other than a weekday lunch! I’m also not a big fan of raw broccoli, so I love the idea of hiding it a bunch of other (delicious!) ingredients. Yum.

      I try so hard to take a salad as often as possible. It seems like lunch is the best time to pack in as many veggies as possible in one sitting. Plus, date night with the hubs is a much better way to spend money.

    By the way, I love the new B&W theme you have going on. Very fresh! Lunch and snacks can definitely be time consuming to prepare but oh so worth it. I’m guilty of repeating the same 10 dishes. Thanks for a new idea.

      Thanks! I was wondering if anyone would notice. Just my little attempt and cleaning things up for the new year! 🙂

    I read your “Greek yogurt and canned pumpkin with a dollop of peanut butter” a few weeks ago your ‘day in the life’ post. Since I had everything on hand, I tried it and topped it with multi grain cheerios. I’ve got to hand it to you, it’s fantastic and filling! Thanks 🙂

    I LOVE a basic but wonderful chopped salad. And this salad is definitely calling me.. especially with the broccoli included within this dish. Amazing.
