Turkey, Spinach and Apple Wrap

This content was last updated on February 26, 2020

Keep this recipe handy for your Thanksgiving leftovers. A healthy combination of plant-based, cancer-fighting foods and leftover turkey easily turns into a quick lunch. The wrap’s appeal comes from the variety of textures: crunchiness from the apples and spinach, firmness from the turkey and creaminess from the simple dressing.

Ingredients

1x
2x
3x
  • 1 Tbsp. reduced-fat mayonnaise*
  • 2 tsp. honey mustard
  • 2 (8-in) whole-wheat flour tortillas
  • 2 cups baby spinach, washed and dried, loosely packed
  • 4 thin slices (4 oz.) turkey breast
  • 1/4 Granny Smith apple, sliced paper-thin
Makes 2 servings (1 wrap per serving). Per serving: 230 calories, 6 g total fat (1.5 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 35 mg cholesterol, 30 g carbohydrates, 17 g protein, 1 g dietary fiber, 420 mg sodium, 5 g sugar, 0 g added sugar.

Directions

  1. Combine mayonnaise and mustard. Lay out both wraps. Spread the edges of each wrap with the mayonnaise/mustard mixture.
  2. Leaving a margin free on the side closest to you, arrange a layer of greens on top of wraps. Top each layer with half the turkey. Evenly divide apple slices and lay lengthwise across turkey. Fold over the end of the wrap closest to you, then the two sides. Roll the wrap as tightly as possible toward the opposite side.
  3. Serve immediately or cover each wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate, seam side down. When ready to serve, remove plastic wrap and cut each wrap in half, at an angle.

Notes

*May substitute 1 Tbsp. mashed avocado in place of mayonnaise.
