Ingredients You’ll Need

Tortilla wraps (5)– Using wraps is generally the healthier choice when finding a suitable bread substitute.

They are a terrific item to have on hand, not just for wraps, but you can also make other things with them.

Pesto (4 tbsp) – Pesto is a combination of fresh basil leaves, parmesan, pine nuts, and olive oil. You can make it yourself or find a high-quality option at the grocery store or online.

Mixed leaf salad (2.5 cups) – Using mixed greens in this wrap adds crunch, flavor, and nutrition to the wrap. Darker, mixed greens are high in iron and fiber.

Of course, you can substitute with other greens like spinach, kale, or romaine lettuce.

Shredded mozzarella (4 oz) – Mozzarella provides a creamy, salty flavor to the wrap. It’s highly recommended to stick to mozzarella, but there are some substitute options.

These options include goat cheese or feta cheese. Both of these cheeses are also creamy and salty.

Tomatoes (4 medium) – Tomatoes are a good source of potassium, vitamin K, and folate. They are also known to decrease the risk of heart disease and cancer.

Basil (20 leaves) – Basil is another ingredient you’ll love using as the summer months approach. In fact, you can usually find a small planter at your local grocery store so that you can grow your own.

Dill (1 tbsp) – Dill is another fresh herb you’ll see a lot during the warmer months. Its distinct flavor will make a big difference in this wrap.

It’s ok if you don’t like dill. You can either omit it or try another fresh herb like parsley or mint.

Salt & black pepper (to taste)

How to Make Basil Tomato Wrap

Step 1. Once everything is gathered, start by spreading the pesto on the entire tortilla.

Step 2. Then, on the tortilla’s right side, add the remaining ingredients – tomato, mozzarella, basil, and mixed greens. Lastly, sprinkle them with salt and pepper.

Step 3. Now, roll up each wrap tightly to keep all of the ingredients inside.

Step 4. Finally, cut them in half, and now they are ready to serve.

Is a Wrap Better than Bread?

Using a wrap instead of bread is usually a healthier choice. Sliced bread typically has a higher carb and sugar content.

This doesn’t mean that every wrap is healthier, though. You’ll want to be sure to read the nutritional label before purchasing.

So, when you’re buying wraps, look for the sugar, carbohydrate, and calorie content. Compare those numbers from a “healthy wrap” to a regular flour tortilla.

How Long Will They Last in the Fridge?

These wraps do taste the best when you eat them right away. Because they are made with ingredients that need to stay fresh, you shouldn’t really make them that far ahead of time.

You can make the wrap in the morning and bring it with you on the go. Just make sure that you use an air-tight container to maintain the freshness.

Also, be sure to enjoy it on the same day. If not, the wrap might get a little soggy from the tomatoes and pesto.
