  • 4 large radishes
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 cup salad greens
  • 3 sprigs fresh herbs (parsley, dill, cilantro, or combination)
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 ounces low-fat Swiss or cheddar cheese
  • 1 large, ripe avocado
  • ¼ cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 3 (8-inch) whole wheat flour tortillas


  1. Scrub and rinse radishes and carrots. Rinse salad greens. Pat all veggies dry.
  2. Use a vegetable peeler to peel radishes and carrots into long, thin strips. In a medium bowl, collect veggie strips.
  3. Rinse herbs. Pluck leaves off stems. Tear leaves into smaller pieces.
  4. Rinse lemon. Zest using the small holes of a box grater. Cut in half and remove seeds.
  5. Grate cheese.
  6. Slice avocado lengthwise. Remove pit. Scoop avocado out of shell.
  7. In a small bowl, use a fork to mash avocado. Stir in yogurt.
  8. Squeeze a little lemon juice onto avocado mixture. Add herbs and a pinch of lemon zest. Stir.
  9. Warm 1 tortilla in the microwave for 30 seconds, or longer as needed.
  10. Place the warm tortilla on a cutting board. Spread 1/8 avocado mixture over center of tortilla. Layer with 1/8 greens, 1/8 grated veggies, and 1/8 cheese. If using turkey, add 1/8 turkey now. Squeeze more lemon juice over the mixture.
  11. Roll tortilla and toppings into a log shape. Use a knife to slice wrap into four “pinwheels.”
  12. Repeat process for the other 2 tortillas. You will end up with a total of 12 pinwheels.
