Default Feta Cheese Wrap

This is my favorite "diet food" EVER!! I would eat it even if I weren't dieting =) I got it out of a book called The Woman's Day Guide to Lasting Weight Loss.

Feta Cheese Wrap

-Four 8-in. flour tortillas
-For the dressing: 1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
-1 cup fresh spinach, cut in strips
-1 cup each finely chopped cucumber, tomato, and celery
-1/2 cup shredded carrots
-6 oz feta cheese, crumbled
-1/2 cup cooked brown rice
-20 pitted black olives: 16 chopped, 4 sliced and reserved for garnish (optional)

1. Prepare tortillas as pkg directs.
2. Whisk Dressing ingredients in a large bowl. Add vegetables, cheese rice and chopped olives; toss to mix and coat.
3. Place tortillas in a single layer on work surface. Spread 1/4 of the filling on each. Roll up and secure with a few toothpicks. Garnish each wrap with sliced olives.

Makes 4 wraps
Serving size: 1 wrap
Calories per wrap: 360

*Makes sure you use 8-in. flour tortillas, rather than the 10- or 12-in size. The larger size will add 80 calories.

I make this on a regular basis. You can add/subtract veggies and things you do/don't like. I don't like the cucumbers, so I add chopped pickles instead. Sometimes I add a little tuna. It makes a great lunch or dinner. Usually if I make it for dinner, I will also have some type of low calorie soup to go along with it.

If you decide to try it, I hope you enjoy!!
