Tortilla Wraps and A Refreshing Summer Salad

I was supposed to make a tortilla wrap on the night that I made the “Caribbean Salad” but I forgot the alfalfa sprouts that I bought from the grocery (long story). I nonetheless made one but it was not what I wanted. So, I made another attempt last night:

I was very happy with it, indeed. It’s a warm tortilla smothered with softened cream cheese topped with an oven baked ham, cucumbers, tomatoes and alfalfa sprouts. To accompany it, I made a refreshing summer salad:

It has mixed greens, jicama, ripe mangoes, grapes and honey roasted nuts. For the dressing, I used a little bit of shoyu, orange juice, lemon juice, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper – shaken, not stirred.

I must say that MB loved this salad even more than the previous one. He loved the dressing so much that he kept pestering me to pour all the dressing every 2 minutes or so.

This meal was delicious! I was so full last night from the salad. We’ve become such huge fans of salads that I’ve made another one for tonight’s dinner. Watch out for that.

  3. This looks just amazing. Now I've got an idea for a unique baon for my little girl when she goes to school. I wonder if the veggies will change color after a few hours inside a lunch box?

  4. Thank you p.cook! Just make sure that the box doesn't touch any hot containers. I think the veggies will hold up well. I used to bring this for baon too to the office and the veggies survived the commute.
