Wraps make great summertime meals; they’re easy to execute and so refreshing when it’s hot outside. And even finicky kids usually like them — maybe even enough to help you make dinner.

This recipe makes four large wraps, but the recipe is easy enough to double if bigger appetites need more.

That said, though, a hearty serving of coleslaw or fruit salad, or even pineapple slices or melon wedges, will complement the wraps nicely.

A few notes on the ingredients: We had no trouble finding Greek yogurt with honey, and like the way it adds a touch of sweetness to its surroundings. Obviously, you can also add honey (about 2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon) to plain yogurt. Likewise, we love tarragon, but persnickety palates may prefer milder basil or mint. And a half-cup of dried cranberries could substitute for the apple.

Finally, you can make this recipe easier by buying packaged grilled chicken or turkey strips. Or harder: Fry your own bacon instead of buying bacon bits. Bowing to summer, though, I don’t want to cook any longer than I have to, and the small amount needed makes this convenience product perfect for the purposes here.

Get the idea? Wraps are tailor-made for exploiting what’s at hand, and that includes your imagination.
