TUESDAY RECIPE: TROPICAL TORTILLAS

With the weather being crazy lately, I thought finding a recipe that makes us think about warm weather (and summer) may trick Mother Nature into bringing back the sun. This wrap will take your taste buds on a ride to some tropical destination; may it be the Caribbean or Fiji. The sweetness of the cantaloupe and green apple slices gives you that hint of summer. It also goes great with Cranberry Walnut dressing. The almonds give the wrap a nice crunch. Overall, this is a great recipe if you want to daydream about the days where you could lounge around on the beach!

1 Cup Of Fresh Spinach

¼ Cup Of Diced Green Apples

2 Small Green Bell Peppers
