I used to eat these when I was dieting and they became a lifestyle with me. I use romain lettuce because it makes a nice fold to hold the meat. My favorite is Ocsar Myer oven roasted turkey. I sometimes sprinkle some sunflower seeds or other salad toppings to give a little crunch. I make up 6 at a time , cut in half, and place in a zip lock container in the fridge, and snack off them all day.
I eat a variation of this all the time- I mash up kidney beans, add chopped onions and coarse black pepper, and top it with spicy mustard in the lettuce wrap. Delish!
What a tasty lil recipe - I did sub pork roast for the turkey - I had to use it up and it was delicious - Love lettuce wraps love this recipe
I love this recipe, but I leave out the mayonnaise and the onion. Dijon mustard works well all by itself. Sometimes I add a slice of low-fat ham. Yum! Makes a great snack that satisfies.
this recipe has got to be my favorite lunch time meal! I used a tsp of dijonnaise instead of mayo and it gave the wrap a really good kick. This recipe is healthy, quick and absolutely delicious~! BUT i don't really find it to be all that filling. I have 2 and even after that I'm still a little hungry, so i'll usually hold my self over with an apple (or other kind of fruit)
Excellent low calorie snack, that is also filling!
This is wonderful. I am trying to watch my calories and taking the bread out of my turkey sandwich cut a significant chunk out of my calorie intake. Not only that, but I really enjoy the crisp lettuce and the portable salad feel. Tastes wonderful and I don't feel at all deprived. Good job!
I was sure I was going to miss the bread or tortilla and this would leave me feeling hungry but it didn't. I am a calorie counter too so I really appreciate this idea, thanks!
What a great little snack! Try this, replace the regular mustard with dijonnaise or dijon style mustard. Then combine the mayo, mustard, and onions and mix in a little ground thyme. Even MORE delicious! Thanks for sharing this simple, but very tasty, recipe!
I made these for lunch and they were delicious. Simple idea, it was really quick to make and it saved loads of calories! Thanks very much.
