Ingredients:

  • 2 ½ Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons mint leaves, coarsely chopped

  • 2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ - 1 Tablespoon Greek Kalamata olive juice (optional)

2. Trim, shred and rough chop the lettuce, wash and dry thoroughly.
3. Toss the lettuce, tomatoes, onions (if using), cucumbers, feta cheese and olives with the dressing.
4. Steam the tortillas for 3 minutes until warm. (If not using immediately, cool, them cover with foil to keep them moist until ready for use). (If tortillas are soft this step is not necessary).

6. Fold the right and left sides of the tortilla into the center.
7. Roll the tortilla away from you, until all the contents are enclosed.
