Picnic Seafood Wrap

My family had a fun beach picnic and hike on New Year's Eve day.  What a pleasant way to look forward to the new year and reminisce about the old.  Of course, yummy food was involved.

These wraps come together quickly and taste better after sitting in the ice chest awhile.  With light potato chips and selection of fruit, topped off with my mother's chewy peanut butter bars,  we were fueled for our hike.  Fun times and special memories!  Happy New Year to one and all!

Seafood Wrap

1/4 cup light mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pound imitation crab, shredded
1/3 pound cooked baby shrimp
1/2 cup thawed frozen artichoke hearts, chopped
1/4 cup thawed frozen peas
5 light flour tortillas (I used La Gloria brand, made from white whole wheat)
About 10 fresh spinach leaves
1/2 medium avocado, sliced

Combine mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper.  Place crab, shrimp, artichoke hearts, and peas in medium mixing bowl.  Add dressing and mix well; set aside.

Lay tortillas on flat surface and place several spinach leaves and avocado slices on each.  Divide seafood mixture evenly among tortillas, about 3/4 cup each.  Roll them up, tucking in the ends.

Cut wraps diagonally and serve, or wrap in foil and take on a picnic.  Makes 5 servings, 6 points plus for Weight Watchers or 248 calories each.
