Turkey Wrap with Apples
1 Josephs lavash flax, oat bran, or whole wheat flatbread
2 ¾ ounce Laughing Cow soft cheese wedges, Swiss or French onion
3-4 ounces deli style turkey breast
2 tablespoons raspberry sauce (recipe below)
½ cup granny smith apples slices (about 10 slices)
½ cup baby arugula, mixed greens, or baby spinach
On a clean surface, lay one sheet of lavash bread and spread soft cheese wedges evenly over the bread.
Lay turkey slices down to completely cover the lavish wrap.
Spread raspberry sauce in the middle of the wrap; leave a 1 inch border so the sauce does not spill out during rolling the wrap.
At the end of the wrap closest to you, lay apple slices and greens, and roll the wrap into a burrito like shape.
Cut in half or fours and roll in foil for lunch to go.
Makes 2 cups
3 cups frozen raspberries
2 tablespoons agave nectar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Blender or food processor
Fine sieve or strainer
Combine raspberries, agave nectar, and lemon juice in a blender or food processor.
Blend until smooth.
Pour mixture into a fine sieve over a bowl, pressing the fruit to separate the seeds from the puree.
Sauce can be kept for 4 days refrigerated or frozen for future use.
It is also great with yogurt, cottage cheese, ice cream, roast chicken or salmon!
