As I was eating mine for lunch today .. I couldn't help but think of how beautifully they encompassed our past Food Swap theme .. Living Below the Line – Healthy Low-Cost Meals

This was an interesting theme for me ..

When I thought about making a low-cost meal for our swap .. besides feeding a crowd, I felt like my dish ought to have little elements of decadence, some richness that made it feel ever so out of the ordinary.

But, ok, if it needs to be cheap, then it means I'd have to be clever and judicious with fancier ingredients, scattering them with elegance rather than enthusiasm, and stretching them with simpler complementary ingredients.

These wraps do just that.

Their fancy is hidden in lemon yogurt .. which gives a wonderful undertone of what am I tasting”.. along with the black olives scattered throughout.

Not too much .. but just enough to give that hint of ” .. it's not just canned tuna mixed with mayo ..” but instead .. something special.

Proof that one can indeed do a low-cost, healthy meal that still packs a lot of flavor .. with simple ingredients that are combined and treated in such a way that the whole much tastier than the sum of its parts.

Enjoy!
