Turkey wraps with Mango and Curried Mayonnaise

My new Duckey take on a summer snack.. try a wrap!

RECIPE: Fresh Turkey wraps layered with curried Mayonnaise, seasonal salad in a wholemeal wrap.

Servings: Makes 4 servings.

You will need:

Curried mayonnaise

2 teaspoons curry powder
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice


2 wholemeal wraps, each cut in half crosswise to make four 12x12-inch squares
8 ounces thinly sliced smoked turkey
4 cups thinly sliced romaine lettuce
2 cups thinly sliced seeded peeled English hothouse cucumber
1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, thinly sliced

To make curried mayonnaise:

Stir curry powder in heavy small skillet over medium-low heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes

Transfer curry powder to small bowl.

Stir in mayonnaise and lemon juice.

Season with salt and pepper.

For sandwiches:

Place 1 wrap square on work surface

Spread with 2 tablespoons curried mayonnaise

Place 1/4 of turkey in center of the wrap

Top turkey with a few leaves of lettuce, 1/2 cup cucumber, 1/4 of mango

Top with 1/4 of avocado slices

Fold in short sides of wrap, then roll up like burrito, enclosing filling completely

Repeat process for remaining 3 wraps

(Can be made 4 hours ahead. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap keep refrigerated)

Cut wraps in half crosswise.

These make such a refreshing change from the usual sandwich and are great for picnics or dinner parties!
