Veggie Wrap with Ranch dressing

The weather has finally begun to warm up, and no one can appreciate this more than a native New Englander! I can’t get enough of the picnics, barbecues, and beach days. Summer food can seem pretty standard: grilled veggies, hamburgers, hot dogs, and lemonade is the norm. But for the times when you don’t want to cook or grill, and you just want something light and refreshing, this ranch veggie wrap is a perfect option! It’s quick, easy, and a good choice if you want a vegetarian option amidst all the barbecued foods. Give it a shot! 

 Ingredients:

Carrots — 1 ½ cups grated

Cabbage (red or green) — 1 ½ cups grated

Veggie Wrap with Ranch Dressing-7

Tomato — ½ tomato diced

Cucumber — ½ cucumber grated

Veggie Wrap with Ranch Dressing-4

Red bell pepper/Green bell pepper — 1/3 cup diced

Veggie Wrap with Ranch Dressing-6

Handful of cilantro — chopped

Veggie Wrap with Ranch Dressing-5

1 can black beans – rinsed and drained really well (you can substitute Feta cheese chunks instead of the beans for protein)

½ t salt

½ t black pepper

4 T Ranch dressing

1 clove garlic microplaned/grated

Whole wheat tortilla

 

Directions: 

  • Mix all the vegetables and beans in a big bowl.
  • Add the Ranch dressing, and seasonings.
  • Mix well and taste test.
  • Warm a Whole wheat tortilla or pita (your choice) on a griddle. Just warm it, don’t make it crispy.
  • Spread the veggie mix on the tortilla and roll it up.

  • My one suggestion for the wrap is that in case you are not going to eat it right away, then pack the tortilla/pita and the veggie mix separately. The veggie mix should be kept chilled.  That way the wrap will not become soggy!
