Pesto Wraps

Photo by Mother Earth Living.

If you are tired of the same old food and you want a healthy snack option, put down the pretzels and get to the kitchen. These pesto wraps are delicious and nutritious; a perfect summer treat.

What you need:

3 large zucchini, peeled

Pinch of sun-dried sea salt

Juice of 1/2  lemon

Pesto (Click for recipe)

Using a vegetable peeler or mandoline, cut thin, wide strips lengthwise  down the zucchini.

Place the zucchini strips in a bowl, cover with water, add  the sea salt and lemon juice, and soak for 2 hours, or until they taste clean (not starchy). Drain, rinse, and drain again.

To prepare each wrap, lay a zucchini strip flat on your work surface. Drop a teaspoon of pesto in the center of the zucchini strip. Press a small piece of  tomato into the pesto. Fold or roll up the zucchini strip. Secure with a toothpick. 

Enjoy!
