We love these wraps for St. Patty’s day, but the crisp green cucumber with creamy avocado and cream cheese makes a refreshing meal any time. While we don’t use a traditional green goddess dressing, our herbed cream cheese with chives, garlic and fresh lemon more than makes up for it.
For the Wraps:
4 Spinach Wraps (found near tortillas)
1 Cucumber, peeled and sliced thin
2 Avocados, peeled and sliced thin
1 Head Butter lettuce, leaves washed
1 recipe Herbed Cream Cheese, below
For the Herbed Cream Cheese:
8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1 clove Garlic, minced
1/4 cup Chives, chopped
1–2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1. Prepare the herbed cream cheese: add all ingredients to a medium sized bowl and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Set aside.
2. Assemble the wraps: lay the spinach wraps out flat on a cutting board. Spread 1-2 ounces of cream cheese on each wrap. Layer each with sliced cucumber, avocado and lettuce leaves.
3. To fold: Fold 2 opposite sides in towards the center about 1 inch. Roll the wrap upwards, starting from the bottom, burrito style. Slice in half and serve.
