Salmon Wrap with Dill Sauce

THIS IS SO GOOD. It is light and refreshing, healthy and filling!

Recipe: Serves 1 hungry lady/man or 2 snacksters

Fill a pot with an inch of water and put it on high heat on the stove. Place a noodle strainer in the pot so it is suspended in air.

Take a 4 ounce salmon filet and squeeze lemon juice on it. Place it pink side down in the strainer so that it gets steamed. Put a few slices of lemon around the filet and let it steam for 6-8 minutes.

Meanwhile, place 1 tbsp plain greek yogurt, 1 tbsp canola mayo, 1 tbsp light sour cream, almost 1 tbsp dijon mustard, a squeeze of lemon, and a drizzle of white balsamic vinegar into a little bowl. Add some fresh salt and pepper and stir. Stir in 1/2 tbsp dried dill.

Peel half of a cucumber and slice into discs. Then slice the discs into four segments.

When the fish is done, combine the cucumber and salmon with the dill sauce and stir.

To serve, divide the mixture between two whole wheat tortillas and roll up!

Benefits:

Dill * aids in digestion, is a relaxant, can help ease insomnia, and contains the antioxidants monoterpenes, which protect against cancer!

Salmon * is high in Vitamin D and omega 3 fatty acids which raise HDL (good) cholesterol levels and lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Also makes hair grow faster (from personal experience!) and your skin smoother.

Canola mayo * Contains the good monounsaturated fats!

Whole wheat tortilla * Has more fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals than white flour. Also, because it is whole wheat, it will not spike your blood sugar like a refined white tortilla would.
