This low-carb turkey club wrap is tasty, healthy and easy to eat on the go

Print this recipe
When you're short on time but need to prepare a low-carb, healthy lunch for you and your family, this turkey club wrap offers a tasty option. Instead of bread and traditional wraps, the recipe cuts carbs by using a double wrap of whole-leaf romaine lettuce for an extra dose of nutrition and texture. If you're OK with some carbs, replace the lettuce leaves with pita bread or a plain flour tortilla — or even one flavored with spinach or tomato.
As with nearly every sandwich, you can adjust the ingredients according to personal taste. This wrap uses sliced turkey, avocado, cheddar cheese and a small dollop of mayonnaise. Try tomato slices, mustard, pickle slices, relish or crispy slices of bacon. It's an easy dish for any carb-conscious eater who doesn't have much time to spend in the kitchen.

10 minutes
8 large leaves romaine lettuce, whole
1/3 cup mayonnaise, divided
12 slices deli turkey meat
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 avocado, sliced
Freshly ground black pepper (optional)
Remove the romaine's heart. Wash and dry each leaf.
Place one leaf down on a flat surface, followed by another leaf that mostly overlaps the first one.
Place three rolled or folded slices of turkey onto the lettuce leaves.
Spread a dollop of mayonnaise on the turkey.
Sprinkle some of the shredded cheese on top of the mayonnaise.
Top the cheese with 2 or 3 avocado slices.
Grind fresh ground pepper over the top, if desired.
Repeat the previous steps to prepare the other three wraps.
Roll the wraps and secure with toothpicks, or leave them open.
Place the wraps in the refrigerator for a chilled sandwich. Otherwise, cut the wrap in half diagonally, and enjoy at room temperature.
