Hummus and Bacon Salad Wraps with Feta

Sometimes on the weekends I may have no plans for what I'm going to make for dinner, and instead rummage through the fridge and come up with something from the bits of whatever happens to be hanging in the crisper. Often, I find leftover salad makes a great addition to wraps-not only does it help me use it up before things go bad, but it's healthy too! I never really thought of putting feta and hummus together before, but the combination was really very tasty. In fact, it was so good that we made them again a week later just so I could blog them for you. Well, maybe. We really made them so we could eat them again.

As far as the salad goes, it's very easy; just use whatever strikes your fancy. We usually have chopped salad with shredded green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, shredded carrots, finely chopped sweet pepper and a bit of cucumber. You can come up with your own combination! It's a really great way to just use that leftover salad rather than have it sit and wilt in the fridge. Change up the veggies or greens to your liking-arugula and spinach would be really good, too!

Makes 4 wraps


1/4 cup hummus
1 avocado, pitted and cut into slices (1/4 of the avocado per tortilla)
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
4 cups tossed green salad
2 oz feta cheese, crumbled
four 10 inch flour tortillas


Lay the tortillas out on the counter in front of you. Spoon 1 tbsp of hummus into the center of each and smear to make a line. Divide the bacon between the four tortillas and sprinkle over top.

Mound the salad on the hummus. Sprinkle over feta and lay the avocado slices down the center. Sprinkle with fresh cracked pepper.

Rolling wraps can be a little tricky. I tend to fold in the sides, and then fold the side closest to me over the filling and roll it up, tucking in the sides as I go. It works quite well, I think. Then I cut the wrap in half.

These would make a great lunch, but I think I would make it the morning of the day I planned to eat it, otherwise the salad part of the wrap could become wilty and slimy from the moisture of the hummus. Just wrap it in cling film after you roll it, and there you go! Lunch!

A tasty lunch at that, too.
