I don’t about where you live, but where I am it is still SO stinkin’ hot! The last thing I want to do is heat up the oven for prolonged periods of time. During the summer I make my Southwest Pasta Salad and BBQ Chicken Entree Salad weekly! The other night I wanted to make something a little different and that’s where this Strawberry Spinach Wraps recipe comes in.
I took my favorite Strawberry Spinach Salad, added a few extra ingredients like avocado and rotisserie chicken to make it a bit more substantial, and rolled it up into a wrap. It made a delicious, light, filling dinner for scorching summer nights. And the best part is that it took all of TEN MINUTES to make! Woot, woot!
Avocado Strawberry Spinach Wraps Recipe Variations:
- If you don’t have goat cheese, any type of crumbled blue cheese or feta would work beautifully.
- You can use other berries like blueberries and blackberries.
- Toasted pecans or walnuts can be used.
- You can skip the chicken to make it a vegetarian meal.
- Add bacon for an added flavor element (and let’s face it, who doesn’t like bacon?!?).
- Skip the wraps and you have yourself a filling summer salad!
Cook’s Note – Avocado Strawberry Spinach Wraps:
- The dressing calls for grated white onion. Just use the small hols on your box grater and grate until you have 1 tablespoon of grated onion/juice. You don’t want to skip this in your dressing because it adds a zesty element to it!
- The poppy seed dressing can be made ahead of time (it actually tastes better when made the day before!).
- Leftover poppy seed dressing will keep chilled, in an air-tight container, for up to a week.
