I’ve never been to Greece, but it is absolutely my number one dream destination for a vacation away from it all!  I’ve wanted to go there since I was a little girl.  There’s something about crystal clear blue water, white topped villas, and the passionate nature of the people that just appeals to me. And don’t even get me started on the food!  Rich flavors, cheese, healthy fats, and CHEESE….did I mention cheese?

Let’s talk about my love affair with feta, since it’s the start of the show in these Mediterranean Hummus Wraps!  Traditionally, this distinctive cheese is made from sheep or goat’s milk, though much of what we consume today is often time sourced from cow’s milk.  In the store, we find both the crumbled and block version, and what you choose depends really on what you plan to do with it! It crumbles and melts perfectly on all sorts of deliciousness, tops a salad like no other, and in this dish, creates a creamy dressing-like quality to our chicken that is out of this world!

The true beauty of these Mediterranean Hummus Wraps is that they’re SO VERSATILE.  You can pick your own vessel (lettuce, collards, jicama, gluten-free tortillas, etc.), you can get your chicken pre-cooked from the salad bar or from a rotisserie chicken, and you can make your own hummus or buy store bought—really whatever makes sense for you in the time and budget categories, the world is your oyster with this one!

Tell me, if you had to pick a favorite cheese, what would it be?  Brie and Feta get me every time, but I’m dying to know if it’s something you love or just have luke-warm feelings about!  If you’re dairy-free, how do you get your creamy, cheesy fix?  Let’s hear it friends!

    At fresh thyme grocery store they have a goat cheese crumbled feta which is DELICIOUS! I trick people with it all the time. People that don’t even like goat cheese have no idea that’s what they’re eating.

    I’m super lactose intolerant, and even goat cheese is a no-go for me. I recently found out that I can handle small amounts of sheep’s milk cheese (yay!) so I’ve been enjoying manchego and sheep’s milk gouda! I found so much creamy sheep’s milk feta while in Europe, and am still hunting down some North American versions. Cabot Hill makes completely lactose free sharp cheddars too which are good!
