Crunchy Veggie Wrap

Ingredients:  
cup reduced-fat mayonnaise* 1 medium carrot, cut into strips
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice  1 small ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and cut into slices
1 tsp grated lime peel      1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut into strips
4 8-inch whole-wheat flour tortillas    2 cups fresh spinach leaves, washed and dried, stems removed

Directions:
In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice and lime peel. Heat the tortillas in the microwave for 15-20 seconds on high to make it easier for you to roll them. Spread each tortilla evenly with the mayonnaise mixture.  Arrange the spinach leaves on top of each tortilla, then the avocado slices, bell pepper and carrots. Roll the tortillas up tightly. Place the seam sides down on the serving plates. 

* As an alternative to the mayonnaise lime mixture, use a prepared hummus, yogurt-cucumber dip, low fat flavored cream cheese, salsa, baba ganoush or mustard

Other Options: Try arugula instead of spinach. You can also add any type of bean, grated zucchini, tomatoes, shredded cabbage, onions, mushrooms and chopped cucumbers.
