Vegetable Salad Burritos
(makes 4 servings)
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 medium cucumber, seeded and diced
1/2 medium green bell pepper, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons (20 g) finely minced celery
2 tablespoons (20 g) finely minced red onion
2 tablespoons (8 g) minced cilantro
2 tablespoons (30 g) light mayonnaise
1 medium avocado, seeded, peeled, and diced
4 6-inch (15 cm) fat free flour tortillas
- In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, celery, red onion, cilantro, and mayonnaise. Cover and chill until ready to assemble.
- Just before serving, prepare avocado and stir into vegetable mixture. Using a slotted spoon to drain off any liquid, divide the mixture between the 4 tortillas, placing the vegetables just off-center, near the edge where you’re going to start rolling. Roll up and cut each burrito in half. Serve at once.
