This recipe inspired in part or in whole from here.


  1. I cut up a couple hard boiled eggs and threw them in too. Good stuff.

  2. What other sort of lettuce works for this?
    We could not get Romaine, so we bought normal green lettuce with the biggest leaves we could find.
    But the consistency seems a bit too thin.

    Other than that, it tasted great. We used as stuffing “chicken gyros” which you can buy here readily marinated. We roasted the meat and combined it warm with the wrap sauce. The meat gave the wraps a nice touch.

    Another thing that I like to do instead of wrap them in lettuce is to use endives. Since they are firm, they act as chips for dip!

  4. This is exactly how I make guacamole, except I drain the diced tomatoes in a colander to keep the consistency thick.

  5. Nina- What’s the recipe for the warm wrap sauce.
