Cilantro Pulled Pork Wrap with BBQ Sauce

These flavors sing. 

 

I threw this together with odds and ends I had in my fridge, expecting it to be bland, and it was anything but!  The tang of the BBQ sauce and the zing of the cilantro complement each other perfectly.  Having a garlic and herb wrap seemed to help, but you could do this in any kind of wrap or tortilla!

You will need:

  • 1 wrap or tortilla
  • A blend of equal parts BBQ sauce and mayo – mixing them together works best but don’t make TOO much since wraps only need about 2 Tablespoons of spread
  • Pulled pork (any kind of pulled meat would work, I’m sure!)
  • Some grated cheddar
  • A handful of lettuce
  • Slivered onion
  • Some cilantro leaves, about a Tablespoon, sprinkled across the wrap’s contents

Roll it up and enjoy the party in your mouth!

Turkey Bacon Guacamole Wrap

I’m still figuring out how to do wraps. Veggies on the outside?  Inside?  I want the colors to be gorgeously distributed!!

Regardless of gorgeousness, this was yummy!  You will need…

  • A tortilla or wrap
  • A couple Tablespoons of guacamole, spread across the tortilla
  • A handful of crunchy lettuce
  • Turkey cold cuts (I used one big slice and it was enough)
  • Grated cheddar
  • Two slices of bacon, torn into bits
  • Red onion slivers
  • Half a medium tomato, chopped

Throw all those things on the tortilla, wrap it up tightly, and enjoy!

Turkey or Ham Wrap with Hummus

 

I’m still trying to figure out the best way to fill a wrap. Lettuce on the bottom?  Meat on the bottom?  I don’t think I quite have the knack yet, but this was pretty and delicious anyway!

  • One large wheat wrap
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of hummus for spread
  • A big handful of spring greens
  • 3 slices cold cuts, ham or turkey (I used both!)
  • 3 slices of a smooth, basic cheese (I used Cooper, but mozzarella might be even better!)
  • Slivered red onion
  • About half a plum tomato, sliced or chopped

Roll all those up together and you have a yummy combination!

Well, my mouth is very happy right now.  To make this heavenly combination, you will need:

  • Wheat or white tortilla / wrap
  • A spoonful mayonnaise mixed with a dollop of Dijon mustard and a drizzle of honey
  • Herbed turkey cold cuts
  • Grated cheddar
  • Leaf of romaine lettuce
  • One large cut strawberry
  • Some slivers of red onion
  • A small handful of sliced almonds

P.S.  Hello, readers!  I apologize for the long hiatus.  I have a HUGE backlog of yummy sandwich creations to share with you…keep an eye out for sammichy goodness!

 

Turkey Wrap with Mandarin Oranges and Poppyseed Dressing

IMG_1364.JPG

When my siblings and I were young, we used to pretend that mandarin orange slices were slugs.

Pretend I never said that.

This wrap is basically a salad (shhh), put in a tortilla on top of a couple slices of smoked turkey. It made for a yummy lunch! It would be tasty as a lettuce wrap too – just put the lettuce on the outside instead of the tortilla. To make it as shown, you will need:

1. A tortilla or wrap
2. Turkey cold cuts
3. Some romaine lettuce
4. A few mandarin orange slices (I used canned, but you could peel and segment a whole fresh mandarin orange, too)
5. Some slivers of red onion…err on the skimpy side for this
6. Some sliced almonds, if you want
7. A drizzle of poppyseed dressing

Roll it up and crunch away! Now I want to make a lettuce wrap version. But all my slugs oranges are gone…boo. 😉

Sandwiches and Friends Around the Web – Oct. 2014

Some sammiches I’ve seen that make my mouth water to try them!  None of these are mine and I haven’t made them (YET) but you can go to the blog where I found them by clicking the image or the blog title in the caption above.

Turkey Apple Brie Panini from Nutmeg Nanny.

This chicken pesto wonderment from a blog called Damn Delicious.

Healthy cashew chicken salad lettuce wraps from Tried and Tasty.

Now, I don’t like spicy food, but this looks so good anyway!!  Turkey-Brie Sandwich with Peaches and Arugula from Lemon Tree Dwelling.

I REALLY want to try making waffle sandwiches…using waffles for the bread!  I got the idea from using pumpkin waffles for Thanksgiving sandwiches, but then I found this Huffington Post list of waffle sandwiches….yuuuuum!  This one looked especially tasty, from a blog called A Beautiful Mess.  Eggs, bacon and avocado on cheddar waffles!

Happy sandwich inspirations!
