When we saw these on Pinterest, they just screamed out three words: Healthy, picnic and cool-looking! Okay, maybe three and a half words. So when you're headed out on a spring or summertime adventure, don't forget to pack a few of these! The health and nutrition experts over at JoyousHealth.ca say these wraps take less than 10 minutes to prepare and can be stored for a few days in the refrigerator - perfect for your picnic basket with an ice pack. Although the recipe calls for walnuts, you can easily substitute that out for your favorite nut, or even sesame seeds if you have a tree nut allergy.
Apple avocado wraps with walnut pestoJoyousHealth.ca Ingredients for walnut pesto... 1 cup walnuts (or you could use almonds, pine nuts or sesame seeds) ½ raw garlic clove 1 cup fresh parsley 2 tbsp olive oil Ingredients for rest of wrap ... 4-5 collard greens (you could also use romaine lettuce or kale leaves) 1 apple, thinly sliced 1 avocado, thinly sliced Directions:
- Combine the above ingredients together in a food processor till almost smooth. Set aside.
- Wash collards and cut the tough ends off. Or you could score the middle of the stem so it’s easier to fold. There is no right or wrong way to fold the wraps.
- Place a spoonful of pesto on to the underside (less shiny side) of your wrap.
- Place 4 to 5 apple slices and a few slices of avocado.
- Fold and enjoy!
