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!

Zesty Turkey Roll-Ups
adapted from Oh Sweet Basil
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 1.25 ounce packet taco seasoning
  • 6 large spinach flour tortillas
  • 1 pound deli-sliced turkey
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 roma tomatoes diced
  • green leaf lettuce
  1. Stir together mayo and taco seasoning. Start with about half of the packet and add more to taste.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Sliced each rolled tortilla into 8 slices. Refrigerate until ready to eat.
