Chef Madeleine Dee's Healthy Wraps with Avocado and Apple

It's getting to be perfect picnic weather again, so I'd like to share a quick, cool, & delicious wrap that is sure to please!

Chef Madeleine Dee's Summer Wraps

4 large tortillas (I used some sun-dried tomato ones)
1 avocado, halved and sliced into long strips
1 lb. deli sliced chicken or turkey
8 slices Muenster cheese
8 romaine leaves, washed and dried
1 fuji apple, sliced very thinly
Salt and pepper
Olive oil mayo
Wax paper

1. Spread a tablespoon or two of olive oil mayo on one half of each tortilla, then add 1/4 of the chicken or turkey, the romaine, the cheese, the apple, and the avocado.

2. Sprinkle the tops with a pinch of both salt and pepper, then roll the tortillas tightly over the filling (like enchiladas).

3. Wrap each sandwich in wax paper, taping the seam shut and the ends closed like a Christmas present.

4. Cut in half with a sharp knife, peel back the paper, and have a picnic! :)

This sandwich would be excellent with a big, icy glass of lemonade.
