Aren't you just loving Arugula week? I know I am! Here is the third recipe for your arsenal of arugula recipes. A fabulous and very healthy wrap. This is a delicious mix of flavors and textures.
While we were in France, eating boatloads of pastries and bread, I found myself craving fruit and vegetables. We generally eat quite a lot of fruits and vegetables, and I could tell that my body really needed them to offset all the gluttony.
We purchased some of the most amazing baskets of strawberries that I have ever had at the farmer's market, and we bought lots of greens. I found this wrap recipe on The Kitchn and we made it a few times while we were there. When we got home, I decided to make a few modifications to make it more me, and to make it taste even better than the original.
These babies are fantastic, and full of healthy and beautiful vegetables! It is a vegetarian recipe, but I think a little balsamic glazed chicken would be a great meat filling.
