These wraps are so good - we've made them once a week for a month!

I needed to add a baked sweet potato to add more carbs to this, but the salad turned out yummy.

Cheated a bit to use up other things I had - made wraps with veggie burger patties and hummus. Was tasty!

A little too much lemon. I grated cucumber then soaked up liquid with paper towel so it wouldn't water down the sauce. I wish I had made hummus on the side so it was more of a complete meal.

I am a distracted idiot and forgot to use the red onion and feta. Buy everything else I did "by the book" and it was delicious! Next time I'll try to use ALL the ingredients. :-)

The tzatziki was a bit too lemony.
