Eliza - you won't be sorry, no matter what day you decide to make this wrap!

This sounds amazing. I think I will make have to make this for Monday night dinner instead of Sunday night dinner though. Looks too good to pass up. Not to mention it looks so easy!

Great minds, Katy! It's far too hot in the summer to use the oven every night of the week :)

What a great easy, summer dinner idea! I hate cooking a lot during the hot summer months but this is super easy and doesn't even require turning on the oven! Can't wait to try this and put to use all my fresh tomatoes! Yum.

Love it when you can put all that good farmers market produce to good use :) This recipe is an easy way to do just that!

Great summer dinner idea! Thanks to a recent trip to my local farmers market, my refrigerator is filled right now with bunches of tomatoes and bushels of lettuce just waiting to be put to good use. Best of all these wraps are healthy, so you don’t have to feel guilty that they contain bacon.
