Lettuce Wraps

By  | 

The thing I love most about lettuce wraps, is you can really make them out of whatever you happen to have in the fridge.  This isn’t really a meal you have to plan out.  If you are like me, you always have lettuce in the fridge, there is always some sort of deli meat from the kids’ lunch stash, maybe 15 different dressings to choose from and everything else in there is just icing on the cake! …Ooh, now I want cake.

This isn’t the easiest meal to prep and save, only because the lettuce will get wilty after a while, especially with dressing on it.  If you would like this for a work lunch, I would either keep everything separate (kind of a pain in the butt), or put the dressing in a container and use it like a dipping sauce instead of inside the wrap.

Ingredients:

This delicious lettuce wrap of mine has a large romaine leaf to use as the wrap and is stuffed with ham off the bone, 2 slices of bacon, tomato, red onion, avocado, orange bell pepper, and a tsp. or so of Cucina Antica Low-fat Italian Dressing.  Low fat?  Everyone knows I despise low fat products because they are full of chemicals, but this particular dressing has water as the #1 ingredient instead of oil, so that is why it is “low fat”.  It is also a soy product which isn’t exactly paleo, so if you are hard-core just find a different dressing or make one yourself.  My homemade Italian dressings always come out bad 🙁  If you have a great recipe, please send it my way!

So you kind of just cut everything up and lay it on top of the lettuce leaf like so…

Wrap one side over and hold tightly, pulling everything in together while rolling the rest of the way over.  Secure with 2 toothpicks and cut in half.

Voila!  As you can see, lettuce wraps are easy peasy and delicious 🙂
