Turkey Waldorf Wraps
Loaded with tender roasted turkey, shredded cheese and a light, fruity Waldorf Salad rolled up in a simple Lavash flatbread.
Servings: 12 (3-inch) wraps
For the Waldorf Salad:
- 1/4 cup dried cherries, cranberries or raisins
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise or plain yogurt or a combination of both
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper more or less to taste
- 1/2 cup diced celery
- 1/2 cup halved seedless grapes, I used red but any variety will do
- 1 sweet red apple, cored and diced
- 1/3 cup toasted chopped walnuts
For the wraps:
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 16 large lettuce leaves
- 2 cups diced roasted turkey
- 4 Lavash Flatbreads approximately 9.5" x 12"
Place the dried cherries in a coffee mug and pour hot water over the cherries to cover. Allow them to soak for 5 minutes then drain. Place the cherries on a paper towel lined plate and set aside.
To prepare the Waldorf Salad combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a medium mixing bowl. With a rubber spatula, blend until smooth.
Add the cherries, celery, grapes, apple and walnuts to the mayonnaise mixture. Fold to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
To prepare the wraps, line one flatbread with 3 lettuce leaves. Place about 1/4 cup of diced turkey in a line down one short side of the wrap. Place the shredded cheese in a line next to the turkey, and about 1/2 cup of the Waldorf Salad next to the cheese leaving one short end without ingredients. Starting on the end with the turkey, roll the wrap up tightly. Slice the wrap into three 3-inch pieces.
Wrap each sandwich with parchment paper strips and twine to secure or use a large toothpick to hold the wrap in place.
Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed in an airtight container.
To toast the walnuts, place them in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Stir frequently and cook for about 5 minutes or until starting to brown on the edges. Cool.
We used Lavash Flatbread with flax, oat bran and whole wheat but your favorite flatbread or sandwich roll-up will do. Make sure it is thin and will roll easily.
If you don't have leftover roasted turkey, you can use deli meat or a rotisserie chicken with great results.
Substitute low-fat mayonnaise or use a combination of mayonnaise and low-fat plain yogurt if desired.
