  1. Cut the tortilla wrap in half. Top one half with the grated lighter Cheddar and the chopped spring onion. Cover with the remaining half of the tortilla. 
  2. Heat the tortilla for 1 min each side in a nonstick frying pan until lightly browned. Remove, let cool and cut into 4 wedges. Wrap in foil if you like, then put in a lunchbox. 
  3. For the salad: mix the drained three-bean salad with the chopped yellow pepper, cherry tomatoes and carrot. Place in a separate container.
