Advice:

  • If you prefer, you can replace the mixed salad with just one type of vegetable, such as lettuce or rocket.
  • Add a pinch of crushed red pepper to the Greek yogurt sauce for a spicy touch.
  • You can enrich the wraps with other ingredients of your choice, such as avocado, olives, grilled peppers or feta cheese.
  • The wraps can be stored in the refrigerator for a day, wrapped in foil or cling film.

Variants:

  • Tuna and vegetable wrap: Replace the chicken with 200g of drained canned tuna and add olives, capers and grilled peppers.
  • Tofu and vegetable wrap: Replace the chicken with 200 g of crumbled tofu and sautéed in a pan with a drizzle of oil and vegetables to taste.
  • Hummus and vegetable wrap: Spread the wraps with chickpea hummus and fill with grilled vegetables such as aubergines, courgettes and peppers.
