Green Salad Wraps with Tahini and Olives

One of my most common lunches or snacks is some kind of variation of these wraps! I love grabbing any salad I have on hand, any dips or pates I have made during the week, olives, sun dried tomatoes, fresh herbs- every wrap is a little different and all delicious and nourishing. I used to make these with collard leaves when living in Canada, here in Australia I either use silver beet leaves, cos lettuce leaves or large spinach leaves- see what you can find at local markets! Enjoy!

Method-

 

Lay your leaves out on a flat surface. Spread one tablespoon of tahini horizontally across each leaf and then layer the rest of the ingredients on top.

Roll the leaves up so they form a wrap and if need be, place a toothpick in the centre to secure.

Enjoy!
