I reeeally loved this salad. I didn't want to stop eating it, even though it made a lot. There were a few unexpected ingredients that went so well in here. Do not leave out the peas, they are great in here (who knew?). My favorite of the contest, hands down!
Good, creative use of eggs and pepperoni--who would have "thunk" it? Good flavors, but directions could be clearer to use tortillas--heat a few seconds in the microwave to make it easier to wrap--tortillas won't split that way. I tried this with basil once and cilantro once--great!
I must admit I did not make a wrap out of this, but ate it as a salad. I really enjoyed the flavors. I did add a little salt and pepper and halved the salad. Thanks and good luck!
