With asparagus plentiful this time of year, try to find local as it will be fresher and more tender. These wraps are low in calories since there is no bread or cracker. Yummy!
16 asparagus spears
4 ounces soft goat cheese, room temperature
Sea salt and pepper to taste
16 Bibb lettuce leaves, washed and patted dry with a paper towel
8 thin slices deli roast beef, cut in half
16 slices cucumber, skin on
16 fresh chives, whole
Cut off and discard tough ends of asparagus leaving 3-4 inches of tip.
