Summer lunches have been interesting so far.
One day last week my 4 year old requested a vienna sausage sandwich.
Yeah. Vienna sausages on bread.
Even my husband – who could live on fried bologna sandwiches – gave that one a “WTF” when I told him about it.
I just have no interest in cooking actual meals at lunch time. So it’s microwavable mac & cheese cups and hot dogs most days. With an occasional vienna sausage sandwich thrown in.
I wanted to change things up but still keep it simple. These Zesty Turkey Roll-Ups were perfect for a outside lunch one day when they were splashing around in mud puddles (that they created by dumping out their little pool as soon as I filled it up).
They roll-ups are super colorful and fun and amazingly, my kids did not complain about the lettuce or the tomato. Or the strange green tortilla!

- Stir together mayo and taco seasoning. Start with about half of the packet and add more to taste.
- To assemble, spread desired amount of mayo on each tortilla. Place turkey slices on one side of the tortilla. Layer lettuce, tomatoes, and lettuce in the center of the tortilla.
- Starting on the side with the turkey, roll the tortilla up tightly. Use a bit more mayo if you need to, to help keep the tortilla closed.
- Sliced each rolled tortilla into 8 slices. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
