Wrap filled with everything but the kitchen sink!
As soon as I arrive at farmers market every Saturday, I start looking for something new. Specifically something I have not tried before. This weeks visit did not disappoint. THREE different kinds of microgreens!! All of the sudden I started thinking about honey crisp apples, and how they could be combined with my newly purchased microgreens. I decided on a turkey wrap, and because the mocrogreens were such a gorgeous green, it was equally important to use a spinach wrap.
they always start with a special sauce…
Wraps are so fun to make! First you decide what will be the special sauce, and then you just start layering! Cream cheese is the first perfect step to a special sauce. I like to make my sandwich spreads in my mini food processor, because it blends things so quickly and smoothly. I mixed the softened cream cheese with white balsamic, fresh cilantro, and lemon juice. A particularly delicious combination for the turkey and apples.
Where is my Wisconsin cheese handbook when I need it?
The next step is to spread the special sauce on your wrap, and start layering your veggies. Red peppers were an obvious choice because they looked so beautiful with the honey crisp apples and the spinach wrap. Next came the turkey, and suddenly this was becoming a delectable sandwich wrap! I wanted to use a second cheese that would accentuate the sweet and tart flavor of the honey crisp apples. It is important to realize that when you are from Wisconsin, a second cheese in a sandwich wrap is not uncommon. In fact, it may be mandatory?? I will have to check the rules and get back to you. Anyway, the hands down winner was brie!
I guess for now I will keep my day job…
The final and most difficult step is to wrap up the wrap. This is where things typically start falling apart for me, and why I should never work in a sandwich shop. I get so excited while I am making the sandwich, that I tend to start layering too many layers. Garrett and Maddie can never believe how tall my sandwiches are, and this also makes for tricky wrapping and cutting. I managed to squish all of the goodies inside the spinach wrap, and could not wait to try the first bite!
The crunchy sweet apples paired with the creamy cheeses and turkey were fabulous! The nutty crunch of the microgreens added the perfect texture and flavor to the mix. The size of the microgreens were just the right addition to my latest wrap, along with the first crispy bite of fall flavors. Go grab a wrap and give it a try!Print
