Summer Salad & Baby Beet Lunch Wrap

A colourful, fresh salad wrap with baby beets and pesto.

Close up of Summer Salad & Baby Beet Wrap

The sandwich queen is back!

I do love a homemade sandwich or wrap. They are always so fresh and full of flavour. The crunch is still there and everything hasn't gone soft or a bit soggy as bought wraps can.

This has a colourful punch of flavours, all ready to be wrapped, cut and enjoyed.

Salad Wrap Filling

I spread flour tortilla wraps with pesto, topped it with fresh salad and halved pickled baby beets for that extra zing of flavour.

What makes this wrap so good?

The freshest and best quality ingredients.

Summer Salad & Baby Beet Wrap Ingredients


Wheat and white wraps from Mission Deli are our family favourite. I never use their wholewheat ones as I really don't like them and I stopped buying supermarket wraps as they tended to be a bit claggy.

If you're on a budget, do try the supermarket brands to find the best or look out for special offers.


Homemade pesto is something I make occasionally, but I make sure my store cupboard has jars of ready made pesto for convenience.

I like Sacla Free From Pesto which is suitable for dairy-free and vegan diets, but just as good as the original pesto. I also like Mr Organic Pesto.

Salad Leaves

I used rocket leaves in this wrap, which are called arugula in the US, for their peppery flavour.

Cherry Tomatoes

Tomatoes have to be rich red, ripe and full of flavour. If there is one thing I think it is better to spend extra on it is tomatoes, as the difference between a good tomato and a bad tomato is extreme.


Just buy one and slice it, but do make sure it's firm when you buy it.


From time to time I buy cheap supermarket sweetcorn, which I always regret. You really can't beat Green Giant Sweetcorn.

Baby Beets

I am brand loyal with these too, I have tried many brands and only one will do. Pickled baby beets have to be Baxters baby beets.

Of course you may not get these brands if you live outside the UK. Buy your normal brands, but do pay a little extra for the tomatoes and make sure the tortillas are good quality.

Oh and I'm not working with any of these companies, I just like to pass recommendations to my readers.

Which type of tomatoes are best to buy?

When buying tomatoes you should look for a deep red colour and a firm tomato.

For the best flavour buy organic tomatoes. They are more expensive, but well worth the price for that real tomato flavour. So many tomatoes are bland and flavourless.

If you're given tomatoes from someone's garden or greenhouse, even better.

How to store tomatoes

Large salad tomatoes or beef tomatoes should be stored at room temperature. 

I keep my tomatoes on a bowl on the kitchen window sill, where they darken as they ripen and the flavour improves as they sit there.

Cherry, baby plum tomatoes and other miniature varieties should be kept in the fridge as they don't last long at room temperature, but take them out of the fridge and leave them out for a little while before using them so they lose the chill for the best flavour.

  1. Mmmm nice I love how you added the baby beets!! (:

    1. They make all the difference and add a real pop of flavour.

  2. I have to admit I am one of those people that end up making the same thing most days for lunch. I make a lot of egg mayo or cheese and pickle sandwiches. So boring I know and this looks so colourful and fresh. Jill

    1. It's easy to fall into making the same lunch. I often do that myself. This one is tasty. I hope you try it Jill.

  3. I am growing beets in my garden right now cant wait till they are ready to try this recipe!

    1. Oh nice. You are obviously have green fingers. The best I can do plant-wise is herbs.

  4. Yum!! This looks so fresh and flavourful. A perfect lunch for sure.

  5. Such vibrant colors. Love everything about this salad!

    1. Thanks, the colours are rather fab and it's so tasty

  6. This looks so delicious, refreshing and healthy. My husband I have decided to start leading a healthier life now and focusing on our diet so I keep on collecting healthy recipes. This recipe of yours is definitely going to my healthy recipes collection.

    1. Oh I am glad and good like with your new healthy eating lifestyle.

  7. I tend to go through phases with sandwiches. I couldn't get enough of my mushroom pate for ages, but I've gone off that one now. Now I've read this, I should have something to keep me going for a long time to come. So many delicious sandwiches.

    1. I know what you mean, I do that too. I am on the wraps and salads at the moment.

  8. We have had some really summery weather recently (though not today, typical bank holiday Monday, eh?) and this looks just the ticket for a light lunch!
