This is a wrap within a wrap. Cottage cheese is mixed with fresh vegetables and herbs for zest and vigor, then placed inside a crisp lettuce leaf before being wrapped in a tortilla. For a change, you could add a little feta cheese. Adapted from Wraps cookbook.

This is sooo good! I love everything in this recipe! I am on a weight crusade, so I made a few changes, but nothing to deter from the recipe. I also used a whole wheat tortilla, and used light cottage cheese, so shave off some calories and fat. This is a perfect thing for me to have and it goes well with my diet. Thanks so much Sharon, this is a winner for sure! Made for KK's forum event for Sharon.

- How to wrap:.
