Swiss Chard Veggie Wraps

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

A few weeks ago Ian and I were at my Dad's for a BBQ and my step mom made delicious veggie wraps with swiss chard. They were unbelievably good. I've had lettuce wraps a million ways but wrapping them in swiss chard was a whole new thing for me. I decided to re-create them this week for dinner and they are now a new family favorite.

Swiss chard is crunchy, full of flavor and is one of the most nutritious vegetables around, making these veggie wraps not only filling but so good for you. The dipping sauce is also a very important component (in my opinion) when eating veggie wraps so I am sharing the one I made to go with these.

What you will need:
  • Swiss chard
  • Sprouts
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Carrots
  • Avocado

Mustard Dill Dipping Sauce:

  • 3/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbs of dill mustard. I used aioli garlic mustard sauce from Trader Joes.
  • 1 tbs of Braggs Liquid Aminos (a healthy soy sauce alternative). If you can not find this low sodium soy sauce will work too.
  • 2 tbs of fresh squeezed lemon

Slice and grate your veggies.

Place your veggies on the swiss chard. I cut each large leaf in half since they were so big. You can either add your dipping sauce on top of all the veggies and then wrap, or dip your veggie wrap in the sauce after you wrap it.

Enjoy!

The wrap sounds delicious! I too have had lettuce wraps, but never thought to use swiss chard. And, the dipping sauce is a bonus!! Perfect for a light lunch too.

Ooh I love this! What a great way to get your veggies in. I know I should be eating more dark leafy greens, but it's hard to think of easy ways that actually taste really good. Can't wait to try this. Pretty photos too : )

Looks amazing! I've been debating on planting swiss chard in our garden because my husband doesn't really like it, but I'm going to pick up seeds today because I never thought of making a wrap with it.

Oh this sounds yummy! I think I'd have to throw in some grilled chicken to make sure my husband would eat it haha but I love a fresh dinner - especially in the summer! And that dipping sauce sounds delicious too!

ooooo I wonder if I could use Chard in place of Butter Lettuce for my yummy balsamic ginger chicken lettuce wraps recipe? I just posted it this week. Your veggie & dressing sounds awesome and I will try that one too, but my boyfriend loves his chicken!

How's baby 2.
