Indecision has scored me another recipe mash-up. In an aim to deal with my lunch doldrums, I thought I would spend a little more time making a delicious lunch. I had leftover turkey I wanted to use so I thought of either a Turkey Cobb Salad or making a turkey salad sandwich. I decided to combine the two and make a turkey cobb salad.  Instead of bread, I saved some calories and stuffed the delicious a turkey cobb salad into crisp romaine lettuce leaves.

I still had a wonderful salad for lunch, but it feels so much more fun. The crisp lettuce leaves add so much, a crunchy texture and a refreshing flavor. Really it is all the ingredients for a regular, old salad, but some how it feels more special to use the lettuce leaves like a taco. Whatever it takes to get me through lunch, my problem time of the day.

I would happily serve Turkey Cobb Salad Lettuce Wraps for a brunch or even a bridal shower. With the crisp, sturdy romaine, you have the perfect vehicle to get the turkey salad to your mouth. Plus the crunch, oh man, that is so satisfying. These cute little bundles are filled with so many of my favorite foods like blue cheese, bacon and avocado. I made a quick ranch dressing to bring it all together. It feels like such a splurge, but it is low in calories.

That makes it a serious winner in my book. You could even bring this to work for lunch. Keep the salad and leaves separate and just fill the romaine when you are ready to eat. You could even use the leaves like a chip and dip them into the salad. Now there is quite a good idea. Chips and dip, but it is really a healthy salad for lunch.

Comments

  1. Christie - this is exactly what I needed to see today! I'm making a serious effort to cut out bread and this is perfect! I know what my lunch will be tomorrow.... Thanks!
  2. Mmmmm...these look wonderful! I love wraps in lettuce! I may have to make this for my lunch tomorrow!
  3. This is my kind of meal, especially in the summer! I love a good Cobb salad and I also love that you served it in lettuce wraps here - they're so much fun to eat!
  4. I love this idea. I have been cutting back on bread and this works great for lunch. Love it.
  5. What a great idea! My mother-in-law is gluten-free so this would be perfect for her! Plus she is a big blue cheese lover.
  6. I am in LOVE with this lunch idea! I do love my bread, but I need to cut it out and letuce wraps are such a fun way to do that
  7. There is just something about being able to eat a salad with your hands that seems so wrong that it's right. I could eat these wraps everyday and be happy!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      I totally agree Kirsten. This is really just a salad but it is so much more fun that you can pick it up and eat it like a taco.
  8. We love lettuce wraps in my house! I like that they are light, no carbs and add that crunch to the meal. These look great! I usually do a warm ground turkey combination in mine, but this turkey cobb salad sounds perfect.

      We had warm monkfish lettuce wraps at a French Vietnamese restaurant over the weekend. They were amazing. The monkfish was actually served with crackers but I preferred it with the lettuce from our other dish. Lettuce wraps rock.
  9. What's the salt (sodium) content. We're all about low sodium in this house.
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Sorry, I do not keep track of the sodium. It will greatly depend on the salt you use and the type of products you use. Myfitnesspal.com is a fantatic resource for that information.
