If you’re on the hunt for healthier alternatives and you’re a fan of salmon, this wrap’s for you! With 32 grams of protein, it’s a great meal before a muscle-building workout. If you’re not a fan of fish, you can substitute shaved turkey or chicken. The neufchâtel cheese mixture with just the herbs and seasonings is super yummy. 🙂Salmon & Veggie Wraps
2 pouches (6 to 7.1 oz. each) skinless, boneless salmon, drained and chunked
8 ounces softened neufchâtel cheese
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried cilantro
1/2 tsp. onion powder
4 spinach wraps
4 large pieces of iceberg lettuce, or whatever you have
1 large tomato, chopped
1 medium cucumber, julienned
2 medium carrots, shredded
(Use any fresh veggies you have on hand that sound good.)
In a small-medium bowl, blend salmon, cream cheese, lemon juice, herbs, and onion powder.
Sandwich: On each of 4 wraps, divide and spread salmon-cream cheese mixture to within 1/2 inch of edges. Lay a lettuce leaf over each tortilla. Top with one cup vegetables placed across middle of tortilla. Roll up envelope-style and slice on diagonal.
