Ham, Apple and Blue Cheese Wraps

Ham-apple-and-blue-cheese-wrap

We haven’t even gotten to Valentine’s Day yet and I’m already thinking about green things to make on St. Patrick’s Day.

And it just occurred to me that Christmas was just a month ago.

How can that be, it seems like such a long time ago.  It was way back in 2013 for goodness sake.

Well because I’m too impatient to hold on to this post until it gets closer to St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a fun green recipe idea for St. Patty’s Day.

I recently tried these Garden Spinach Herb wraps and just love them.  They’re nice and soft which is perfect for rolling, and have a light herb taste.

The only thing is that they’re a bit more expensive than flour tortillas that can also be used for wraps.

But the bright green color is so pretty I just had to have them.

The ingredients in this wrap remind me of salads that have blue cheese in them with a sweet counterpart like apples.

I like to load up on the apples in this wrap because the sweet or tart taste goes so well with the blue cheese.

These wraps hold up nicely in the fridge too if made ahead of time.  It’s something different to pack for lunch at work too.

And a great color of green for a festive St. Patrick’s Day treat.

So let’s check out the ingredients.

Ham-apple-and-blue-cheese-wrap

Sliced ham, apple, crumbled blue cheese, spinach, coarse black pepper, red onion (optional), and Garden Spinach Herb wraps (or your favorite wrap or flour tortilla).

Here’s how to make it.

1-slice-red-onions

Thinly slice the red onion and set aside.

11-slice-apple

With the skin still on, cut the apple in half from the top to the bottom of the apple.  Then cut each half into slices (around the core) that are about 1/4 of an inch thick.  Set aside.

12-slice-spinach

Cut the spinach into strips and set aside.

Next, lay the wrap on a large cutting board or plate and…

Add the ham,

Then,

sprinkle the pepper on top of the ham.

Lay the slices of apple and blue cheese…

…and onions.

Gently fold the right and left sides of the wrap inwards about 1-1/2 inches on each side.

Then roll the wrap starting with the end closest to you towards the other end like you would a burrito.  Cut in half on a diagonal.
