Recipes: Wraps make great summertime meals

Published: Wednesday, Jun. 25, 2014 - 12:00 am

Wraps make great summertime meals; they’re easy to execute and so refreshing when it’s hot outside. And even finicky kids usually like them – maybe even enough to help you make dinner.

This recipe makes four large wraps, but the recipe is easy enough to double if bigger appetites need more.

That said, though, a hearty serving of coleslaw or fruit salad, or even pineapple slices or melon wedges, will complement the wraps nicely.

A few notes on the ingredients: We had no trouble finding Greek yogurt with honey, and like the way it adds a touch of sweetness to its surroundings. Obviously, you can also add honey (about 2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon) to plain yogurt. Likewise, we love tarragon, but persnickety palates may prefer milder basil or mint.

Finally, you can make this recipe easier by buying packaged grilled chicken or turkey strips. Or harder: Fry your own bacon instead of buying bacon bits. Bowing to summer, though, I don’t want to cook any longer than I have to.
