Eating a wrap as an alternative to a sandwich isn’t something new. It’s a great way to cut carbohydrates and calories while still enjoying the delicious fixings of a sandwich.
The best part about using a wrap instead is that it’s like a little pocket that you could put various ingredients inside, and it won’t fall apart like a sandwich.
Sure, deli meat is delicious in a wrap, but what about a delicious avocado cucumber salad?

Ingredients You’ll Need for This Wrap
Greek yogurt – Greek yogurt is a great item to have in your fridge at all times. Plain Greek yogurt can easily be flavored to you liking, whether it’s sweet or savory.
If you are watching your weight, you should look for Greek yogurt with a low-fat percentage and not buy full-fat Greek yogurt.
In this case, it’s being used as a dressing ingredient that adds creaminess to the wrap. It’s a much better alternative to sour cream.
Avocado – Fresh avocados are incredibly delicious in many recipes. They are high in fiber and healthy fats that will help you feel full.
Tortillas – (I’m using Weight Watchers because they’re low in calories) Try to find a tortilla that is low in calories and carbohydrates. Keep in mind that not all tortillas are created equal!
Pesto – Pesto is a blend of fresh basil, pine nuts, parmesan cheese, and olive oil. A little bit of pesto will go a long way when it comes to flavoring a dish.
English cucumber – English cucumbers are a great vegetable that helps you stay hydrated. They are also linked to aiding in weight loss and healthy digestion.
You can substitute with another type of cucumber if you cannot find English cucumbers.
Fresh dill – Fresh dill adds a very distinct flavor that really brings out the dish’s freshness. It’s a good herb to have on hand to add to salads and other meals.
If you don’t like dill, there are some alternatives you can try. You can use another fresh herb like basil, parsley, or chives.
Try sticking to fresh herbs over dried herbs for the best flavor for this recipe, though.
Mixed leaf salad – Having a bag of mixed greens on hand is beneficial. The salad is already prepped (and usually washed) for you.
How to Make Avocado Wrap
The steps to making this wrap are quite simple. Let’s dive right in.
First, you’re going to want to add the chopped cucumber, yogurt, pesto, and fresh dill to a bowl. Gently mix everything together so that the ingredients are coated evenly.
Next, you’ll want to line up your tortillas so they will be ready to build all at once.
Scoop a small portion of the cucumber mix onto each tortilla.
Then gently place the sliced avocados on top of the mixture.
Roll up each tortilla (like a soft taco), and now they are ready to serve.
You can eat the avocado wraps right away or save them for later. The wraps will stay fresh for a few hours if you decide to make them in advance.
For example, if you wanted to make them in the morning and bring them with you to work for lunch.
It’s not recommended to keep them for much longer, as the avocados will oxidize and turn brown.
The best way to keep the avocado wraps fresh would be to wrap them tightly or store them in an air-tight container.
