BLT Wraps with Strawberry Vinaigrette

BLT Wraps with Strawberry Vinaigrette & #PowerYourLunchbox! It’s back to school and I have a delicious and healthy lunch that even picky eaters will love!  This is a sponsored post on behalf of Produce for Kids.

BLT Wraps with Strawberry Vinaigrette from missinthekitchen.comWe are into our third week of school!  So far so good, we are surviving without too many complaints.  We all know that kids need extra good meals to help them through the school day.  I am partnering up with Produce for Kids and taking their Power Up Your Lunchbox Pledge.

PYLP-Take-The-Pledge

With a little planning and a little inspiration, packing healthy lunches can be easy!  Like these BLT Wraps with Strawberry Vinaigrette.

BLT’s are top of the favorite’s list for my boys, but they aren’t the easiest for packing.  I changed a regular BLT with a flour tortilla in place of the bread.  I added spinach, fresh tomatoes, and carrots and topped it off with a mild strawberry vinaigrette.  Very sneaky to get in those extra veggies!  Avocados would also be a fabulous addition.

I drizzled the Strawberry Vinaigrette over the bacon to keep the veggies from getting soggy.  It totally worked.  A little burst of strawberry flavor and we never even missed the mayo. Perfect for packing!

BLT Wraps with Strawberry Vinaigrette  Miss in the Kitchen I am terrible at judging the amount to fill a tortilla, rather it’s a wrap or a taco, I am a chronic over-stuffer.  My boys are big eaters so I say this recipe makes 2 wraps.  If your kids don’t have the appetites of giants, you could use small tortillas and this should make 4 wraps.  Either way, this is totally easy and could all be prepared the night before and assemble quickly before school.

My boys would also love these “Inside Out” Roast Beef Sandwiches that I found on Produce for Kids! Lots of great healthy recipes and inspiration, so be sure to check it out.

These BLT Wraps are a surefire winner for everyone who packs a lunch!
