Greek Wraps with White Bean Hummus
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
To catch the drips, keep a paper towel in your hand as you eat. Batches of the white bean spread are also a terrific dip for specialty potato chips, celery or bread sticks. Make a half portion of the salad for 1 or 2 wraps, and save the extra white bean spread for dipping snacks. Adapted with permission from Rachael Ray 3 Minute Meals.
