[cooking_tip]Large pita rounds, lavosh, and other thin, flat breads can also be used to make sandwich wraps. Although it may look better to layer the ingredients separately in a wrap, it is often more practical to mix some of them together so the filling stays intact and the wrap is easier to eat. For instance, instead of slicing the avocado for these Avocado-Turkey Wraps, mash it with the mayonnaise and mustard to make a thick spread that will help keep the other ingredients in place. If necessary, hold a wrap together with a toothpick.[/cooking_tip]
