Watermelon Sandwich Wraps

It’s amazing what a group of friends around the lunch table can come up with. The only ingredient that’s a must is a spear of watermelon! Try watermelon in lieu of tomato on these sandwiches. You can play with different types of lunch meats, cheeses, spreads or sauces, and of course veggies galore!

  • 1 watermelon spear, about 1/2-inch thick, 1-inch wide and as long as your tortilla!
  • 1 wrap: Wheat, flour, spinach or sun dried tomato
  • 2 to 4 teaspoons spreads: Chive cream cheese, hummus, guacamole, Greek yogurt
  • 5 to 8 slices: turkey, ham, chicken breast, roast beef or pepperoni
  • 2 to 4 teaspoons sauces (marinades and salad dressings): BBQ ranch, pesto, Thai peanut sauce, teriyaki, ginger
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced (approximately 1 /2 cup)
  • 2 to 4 slices cheese: Feta, pepper jack, mozzarella
  • Veggies and Other Toppings: Watercress, olives, scallions, cilantro, romaine, jalapenos, fresh mint, basil, shredded carrots, spinach, sprouts and cucumber slices

Create your own combination or try one of ours! Start with a spread to help stick the other fillings together. Place your toppings the center of tortilla with the watermelon spear on top. Roll tortilla over watermelon spear., tucking in all ingredients. Fasten with a toothpick if needed.
