Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
These simple, flavorful wraps come together fast. Use some of the greens in the wraps and the rest to make a fresh salad to serve on the side.
Smarts #1: Use pita bread (you can slice them open and serve the filling inside as pita pockets if you'd like), flatbread, or even tortillas for these wraps.
Smarts #2: If making Thursday night's meal, be sure to double the spiced lamb.
