I laid out my wraps, smothered with mayo and piled on shredded lettuce, cucumber, tomato and grated carrot. Then I added dollops of guacamole (still struggling to be completely dairy free). Short of salsa I dribbled on sweet chilli sauce instead and then added a smattering of chopped olives for good measure and finally topped with the fajita strips. It had been so long since I'd made a wrap I'd forgotten I'd need to roll it up and in my enthusiasm slightly overloaded the wraps. About 1/3rd of the filling fell out as I rolled them up.
The result was amazing. I realise the strips could have been drowned in flavour but in between the fresh, crispy salad, creamy guacamole and spicy sweet chilli sauce you could still taste the gently spiced strips and all the flavours complemented, even the sporadic tangy pieces of olive.
I will definitely try these strips again. Perhaps in a stir fry or with rice though I wouldn't bother with them cold. The verdict is influenced by the juxtaposition of flavours but still: 5/5!
