Cool California tortilla swirls

Preparation time: 12 minutes
Chilling time: 30 minutes

8″ flour tortilla (may substitute whole wheat or
flavored tortilla)

1 ounce softened Neufchâtel cheese (allow the cheese to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes prior to using it)
1 ounce thinly sliced turkey breast
1 large romaine lettuce leaf
1/2 tomato, thinly sliced
1/6 avocado, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon unsalted, roasted sunflower seeds

Lay tortilla on clean cutting board. Spread the Neufchâtel cheese thinly over the entire surface of the tortilla. Place one ounce of sliced turkey evenly over cheese. Place romaine lettuce leaf in center of tortilla. Arrange thinly sliced tomato evenly over surface. Dip avocado slices into lemon juice for a few minutes to prevent from browning. Drain on paper towel and arrange evenly over whole tortilla. Sprinkle sunflower seeds evenly over entire surface. Roll up the tortilla, burrito fashion, pressing tightly while rolling the contents. Secure with toothpicks or a clean rubber band and chill for 30 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and slice crosswise into circles or, if preferred, leave whole. Wrap in plastic wrap to avoid drying out and chill until serving time.

Yield: 1 tortilla roll
