This Classic Salad Is Made More Substantial By Eating It As A High-Fibre Wrap
We know you'll love this dish - it might even take you back down memory lane to holidays in glorious Italy. We might not always have the weather over here in the UK, but if you make sure to buy good quality ingredients and treat them well, you can always have a little bit of that sunshine on your plate.
This light salad is typical of Italian cooking. Simple, using minimal fresh ingredients and full of clean, clear flavours. By pairing it up with Lo-Dough, you transform what is usually served as an antipasto (starter) dish into something much more filling and substantial. Thanks to the incredibly high fibre content of Lo-Dough, this dish will satisfy and satiate without filling you with nutritionally empty, refined carbohydrates.
Making Your Low-Calorie Wrap
So it goes like this: get some good-sized, ripe tomatoes and take a few slices off one. Take a few slices of mozzarella and line the two up down the middle of your pre-rolled Lo-Dough, alternating between the two. Season well with salt and pepper. This is critical whenever you eat mozzarella and/or fresh tomatoes. Then top with basil and as an optional extra a few bits of chopped spring onion (not traditional, but definitely tasty!). Dress with a little quality extra virgin olive oil and a drizzle of balsamic, then wrap it up and you are good to go!
