As you might know, hummus is good in moderation due to its relatively high fat content. And even though it’s a good, unsaturated type of fat, it still adds calories to your meal. The Hummus & Greek Salad Wrap is just one of the ways of including hummus in your diet without making it a main course. Enjoy the taste, flavor, all the proteins, fiber and minerals of hummus in a healthy way.

Low-Calorie Greek Hummus Wrap Recipe


  • 2 tbsp cucumber, chopped
  • 2 tbsp roma tomato or cherry tomatoes, divided in half chopped
  • 2 tbsp red Onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Kalamata olives, sliced
  • 2 tbsp low fat feta cheese
  • ¼ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar or 1 tbsp Greek Vinaigrette
  • 2-3 tbsp hummus (Homemade Or Store-bought)
  • 2 tbsp roasted red pepper strips (jarred)
  • ½ cup romaine lettuce
  • Whole-wheat tortilla

Preparation Instructions

  1. Start by preparing the Greek salad in a mixing bowl; combine the cucumber, tomato, feta cheese, oregano, red onion, olives and romaine lettuce.
  2. Once you have all the ingredients chopped up, add Feta cheese crumbs and toss the mix with your favorite Greek Vinaigrette /red wine vinegar and then set aside.
  3. Place the tortilla in a frying pan or grill pan over medium heat or warm tortilla on a panini grill if you have one or use one of these methods (If you don't have a grill pan, just use a skillet).
  4. Gently heat about 30 seconds on each side, until the tortilla is warm and flexible; just with a little bit of color! Let the tortilla cool slightly.
  5. Spread the hummus on the tortilla. Place red pepper strips on the middle third of the tortilla, then top with the cucumber mixture.
  6. Wrap the bottom fourth of the tortilla upward, then fold each tortilla side in over the filling, burrito-style. Cut in half, and then serve.
