Classic Cobb Lettuce Wraps

Need an easy lunch…fast??

I love to prep my fridge (or lunch bag if out of the house) with great toppings for a delicious lettuce wrap. A list might look something like this:

  • A really good head of lettuce like Romaine or Butterleaf
  • A veggie with a bit of crunch like bell peppers or cucumbers
  • A sliced lean deli meat like turkey or roast beef
  • A reduced fat cheese such as reduced fat cheddar cheese or low-fat mozzarella 
  • Something from the heart healthy fats section…but not more than one. For example I would use hummus OR light ranch OR thin avocado slices
  • And sometimes a nice wild card like turkey bacon. I will cook up plenty so it’s cooked and ready to go.

I love to layer them all up right before I eat them (which doesn’t take long) instead of putting them together and packing them for the day. It’s a fun process to assemble and takes the same amount of time it would for me to reheat leftovers. Great summertime lunch!!

  1. Sounds very good but one ingredient of a typical Cobb Salad is missing. That would be the hard boiled egg. Is there a reason or just your taste preference.

  2. @Raven that’s a great point! I think sliced boiled eggs would be awesome. No reason or preference except the extra time for the step but if I were planning ahead I would certainly incorporate egg!
