Cobb Salad Lettuce Wraps take all of the deliciousness of a cobb salad and puts it into a low-carb lettuce wrap! Now you can eat salad on the go!
Well this is it. The weekend of my cross country ski race is finally here – no going back now! Actually there was really never any going back since I registered a whopping YEAR ago. What was I thinking?! Actually, it’s been really fun training for and committing to something new and I have to say – I think I might be a cross country ski junkie now.
While my training was pretty laid back, Marc’s on the other hand, was pretty intense. I really admire his dedication to trying to make himself better and faster. The past few years he’s always ended up getting sick or injured around this time of year, which sets him back in his training. This year I told him he should focus a little more on the food he eats and see if it helps at all.
While he doesn’t eat terrible (I mean, he does live with a veggie lover!), most days he packs a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch. As an ER doctor, he doesn’t really get a “lunch break” so bringing leftovers that need to be reheated or eaten with a fork is challenging.
That’s where these Cobb Salad Lettuce Wraps come in. It’s everything you’d put in a healthy, nutrient filled salad, but bundled up into a handheld wrap!
These Cobb Salad Lettuce Wraps have everything you’d in a cobb salad, wrapped into a lettuce wrap. There’s ham, turkey, bacon, tomato, hard boiled egg, blue cheese, cheddar cheese, and ranch dressing. They are really so simple to put together, and involve just a bit of prep work.
The prep work includes cooking the bacon and hardboiling the eggs. After that, the only work is to put all of the ingredients inside a large lettuce leaf, drizzle with ranch, and eat.
I will admit – I did cheat and use store-bought ranch. However, I used the good stuff that you find in the refrigerator section of the store. It’s SO much better than the shelf stable kind!
We both ended up loving these as a delicious and healthy lunch. We were satisfied from all of the protein in the lettuce wraps and from all of the different flavors going on. If you love a good cobb salad, give these lettuce wraps a try!
A few notes on the recipe – it is loose! I don’t have super specific amounts of each ingredient aside from the bacon and hard boiled egg. Just add however much you prefer – it’s really the idea of the Cobb Salad Lettuce Wrap that I wanted to share with you!
Lastly, I used a very leafy romaine for my lettuce wraps. You can also use bibb lettuce or something like that if you want. It’s up to you!
- Large lettuce leaves such as bibb or romaine
- 16 ounces bacon
- 6 large eggs
- sliced turkey and ham deli meat
- 1 large tomato sliced
- Shredded cheddar cheese
- Blue cheese crumbles
- Ranch dressing
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Place bacon on a baking sheet (I line mine with aluminum foil). Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until cooked to your preferred crispiness.
- Let cool.
- While the bacon is cooking, you can hard boil the eggs.
- Bring a pot of water to boil. Carefully lower the eggs into boiling water and boil for 11 minutes. Immediately place eggs into ice bath and chill for 15 minutes.
- To assemble, place desired amount of bacon, turkey, ham, tomato, cheddar cheese, and blue cheese into each lettuce leaf. Top with one sliced hard boiled egg and drizzle with ranch.
- Wrap up and enjoy!
