Dolmas Wrap

I meant to make this the other night but my friend came to visit, so instead I made it for lunch yesterday since I went in to work later in the day. It was super-super easy. I got my three little dolmas from my grocery store's salad bar, so I paid less than a dollar for them. If you can do that, I highly recommend it. The wrap itself is fairly simple and, like most vegetarian wraps, is mostly filled with lettuce, but it's very good and an interesting twist. I would make this again, but probably only for lunch at home.


Dolmas Wrap
Eating Well, Sept/Oct 2009

This satisfying Middle Eastern wrap is full of dolmas and fresh vegetables. It makes a great take-along lunch if you pack the components separately.

1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce
1/4 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 whole-wheat lavash (see Note), or whole-wheat wrap
3 prepared dolmas (see Note)

1. Combine lettuce, cucumber, tomato, yogurt, feta and garlic powder in a small bowl. To serve, spread the lettuce-yogurt mixture on the lavash, top with dolmas and roll.

Yield: 1 serving

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the lettuce-yogurt mixture for up to 1 day.

Ingredient Note: Dolmas are stuffed grape leaves that are traditionally filled with chopped vegetables, grains and sometimes ground meat. Find prepared dolmas in cans or jars near other Middle Eastern ingredients and at some supermarket salad bars.

Lavash is thin, Middle Eastern bread found near other wraps and tortillas. It’s a great alternative to flour tortillas for rolling sandwich ingredients into a wrap. Depending on the brand and size, one serving may be one whole bread or half of the bread—check the nutrition panel on the back of the package.
