Dolmas Wrap

Makes: 1 serving

Active Time:

Total Time:


  • 1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1/4 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 whole-wheat lavash (see Note), or whole-wheat wrap
  • 3 prepared dolmas (see Note)


  1. Combine lettuce, cucumber, tomato, yogurt, feta and garlic powder in a small bowl. To serve, spread the lettuce-yogurt mixture on the lavash, top with dolmas and roll.

Tips & Notes

  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the lettuce-yogurt mixture for up to 1 day.
  • Ingredient Note: Dolmas are stuffed grape leaves that are traditionally filled with chopped vegetables, grains and sometimes ground meat. Find prepared dolmas in cans or jars near other Middle Eastern ingredients and at some supermarket salad bars.
  • Lavash is thin, Middle Eastern bread found near other wraps and tortillas. It’s a great alternative to flour tortillas for rolling sandwich ingredients into a wrap. Depending on the brand and size, one serving may be one whole bread or half of the bread—check the nutrition panel on the back of the package.
  • Eat neat: Keeping the filling inside a wrap or burrito can be a challenge, especially if you’re on the go. That’s why we recommend wrapping your burrito in foil so you can pick it up and eat it without losing the filling, peeling back the foil as you go.
