Salad roll-ups

Salad roll-ups

Madness or genius

It’s another one of those moments; it could be madness or genius, turning the salad roll inside out and removing the need for an actual wrap, wheat or otherwise. Bear with me; I promise it not only works; it is a fantastic little lunch that will make everyone happy. 

No cooking required

I do love a lunch that doesn’t need any cooking. This recipe doesn’t need any cooking at all, just a little bit of time to cut your veggies into sticks and then the rolling. They are so easy to make it is ridiculous. The beauty of this recipe is the flexibility around the fillings if you want to add something different you can, take something out, of course, you can. If the mood strikes, you can even dress the salad leaves before you use them.
