Mediterranean Wrap

Mediterranean WrapEarlier this year, when I was in Orlando, I fell in love.  In fact, it was love at first bite.  I’m talking about the Mediterranean wrap I ate at Au Bon Pain in the Orlando airport.  I ordered it for lunch when I arrived at the airport, and I ordered it again when I was leaving a few days later.  Immediately, I knew I had to recreate it at home and here it is.

If you like biting through a soft tortilla or flatbread, into a mouthful of flavor, then you will absolutely love this.  The wrap is filled with fresh ingredients and a zingy pesto, then finished off with a sprinkle of my favorite…feta cheese.  And, if you have all of the ingredients on hand, you can easily put this together for a fast lunch or healthy dinner, within minutes.

Mediterranean Wrap

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 1 whole wrap

Mediterranean Wrap

  • 4 soft tortillas or flatbread (I use sun-dried tomato flavored flatbread)
  • Sun-dried tomato pesto
  • Hummus
  • Field greens (lettuce)
  • 1/4 seedless cucumber, diced
  • Grape or cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • Kalamata olives, sliced in half
  • Roasted red pepper strips (from a jar)
  • Feta cheese, crumbled

Lay the tortilla or flatbread on a clean counter. Spread about a tablespoon of sun-dried tomato pesto over the surface of the bread, leaving about a 1/2-inch at the edges. Repeat with a tablespoon or two of the hummus. Top with a small handful of field greens, followed by an even layer of the cucumber, tomatoes, olives, roasted peppers and finally the feta cheese. Tightly roll the wrap and lightly press to secure. Carefully slice in half with a slightly diagonal cut. Repeat with the remaining bread and ingredients. Serve immediately.

  1. This sounds so awesome! Such a great lunch or light dinner!

  2. LOVE the flavors going on in the wrap!!

    We don’t have an Au Bon Pain anywhere NEAR Arkansas, so I’m definitely trying this at home!!

  3. I can totally see why you loved this so much. I know I will when I make it!

    Makes me mouth water.

  5. This is one gorgeous wrap! I just love all of that color! And it sounds like a really great and healthy lunch option! Yum!

  6. Did you make the sundried tomato pesto? If not, where do you find it at the store? Looks fabulous!

    • Hi Jen. I found it at Kroger in the Mediterranean section, but you can certainly make your own by grinding up sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, oil, etc.

  7. This looks so delicious and easy, Nikki! Great recipe!

  8. Yum! A delicious dish for a warm summer night! Can’t wait to give it a try…

  9. Yum! This makes me want to perfect a gluten-free tortilla- it looks so good! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. These are the kind of ‘veggie wraps’ I have eaten at places that have no other vegetarian food. But they’re so plain with only vegetables, whereas the pesto & hummus in your Mediterranean wrap makes it sound so good!

  11. I like adding fresh chopped mint to this wrap and placing it in the refrigerator for an hour or two. Makes it cooling/refreshing and works so well with the flavors in this, especially the cucumber. Try mint! :)

  12. This is my go-to lunch in NYC at least once a week! Never thought to make it at home. Thanks for the recipe!
