Asian Fusion Turkey Wraps
Asian Fusion is a hot new cuisine trend. But you don't need to shell out big bucks at a fancy restaurant. In fact, you don't even need to wait until dinner to enjoy the flavors of the Far East. With Asian Fusion Turkey Wraps, lunchtime can be tasty, low-fat AND a bit exotic.
Plus, this recipe is less than 200 calories per serving. With summer fast approaching, this is a great break from your rice cakes.
2 c. cooked, shredded turkey
2 c. shredded cabbage
1/4 c. chopped cilantro
2 T. fresh mint, chopped
2 stalks green onion, minced
1 T. Dijon mustard
1 T. rice vinegar
2 T. soy sauce (low sodium is best)
1 1/2 t. sesame oil
1/4 c. canola oil
pinch granulated sugar or 1 packet of sweetener
6 8-inch flour tortillas
In a medium bowl, mix together turkey, cabbage, herbs and green onions. Set aside.
Make the dressing in a small bowl, whisking together mustard, vinegar, soy sauce and sesame oil. Add a small pinch of granulated sugar (my secret is a packet of Splenda instead). Slowly add the canola oil, whisking into the other ingredients until well-blended.
Pour the dressing over the turkey mixture and stir to combine.
Take each tortilla and add 1-2 spoonfuls of the turkey salad in the center. Fold the bottom up first, then fold each side in. Cut in half and serve! (Serving is 2 halves).
In true fusion form, feel free to experiment with new tastes that inspire you the most. Replace the turkey with shredded carrots and soy if you prefer vegetarian wraps instead.
Fuse your way to a slender figure, without giving up a tasty, satisfying meal!
