6 large romaine lettuce leaves
12 ounces thinly sliced cooked deli roast beef
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 cup diced red bell pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  2. Combine the tomatoes, red peppers, oil, vinegar, cumin, and pepper. Divide the tomato mixture over the beef. 
  3. Roll the paper or foil over the tortilla to encase the filling. Roll until the sandwich is completely rolled up. Fold the excess paper or foil over the top and bottom of each rollup. To eat, peel back the paper or foil.
