Since getting on low carb diet, I find that the most difficult thing is to have something low carb on the road.  There are plenty of snack ideas.  But I am never a snack person.  When I eat, I always love to eat a full meal.  This cabbage wrap recipe was created exactly for that same reason.


I use Black Forest ham and Buffalo chicken because I love bold flavors. You can choose the cuts with less spices. You can even choose all Italian cold cuts to make a different type of cabbage wraps.

If you choose to add any pickles or peppers in the wrap, it could be a mess and the wrap could be very watery. Being a mess maker, I stay away from it.

You can double, triple or even quadruple this cabbage wrap recipe.

I highly recommend you to stick with cabbage because the vegetables stay crunchy for a long time.  Lettuce will never give you the same result.

Assembled cabbage wraps are good in the fridge up to 3 days.  You still get the crunch from the cabbage.

Make this Another No-Cook Meal

Cabbage does need to boil in order to soften it.  Otherwise, it will crack as soon as you roll it.  

You can skip this cooking part by using any kind of lettuce.  No cooking is needed.  So, there you go.  Another great no-cook meal for you.

2 Ways to Make These Cabbage Wraps

1) Use the whole leaf to wrap it like typical wrap you have seen out there. It’s more difficult to pull a whole leaf apart when you bite into it. Plus, the leaf could be too much to chew even though it was cooked.

2) Use half of the leaf and add the same amount of cold cuts and dressing. Just roll to make wrap. It may be a bit messy. It has perfect amount of everything in each bite.  This is my preferred way to go. 

But no worry, I will show you how to do both ways.  Then, you can decide the best way that works for you.

Good Way to Use Up Your Thanksgiving & Christmas Leftover

I know how much you hate to have turkey or ham sandwiches for days after the holidays.  Well, let's switch it up.  Use this cabbage wrap recipe to replace regular bread.  Add your favorite dressing together with turkey or ham leftover.  You will love the crunch and all the fiber you get from the cabbage.  It will make you feel g.o.o.d.....

Cabbage Wrap Recipe and Directions

2 Green Cabbage Leaves (cut into halves by cutting through the stem and its midrib)
4 Ham Slices from the deli counter
8 Chicken Slices from the deli counter
8 American White Cheese Slices from the deli counter
1 Medium Sauce Pan of Water

1/4 cup (2oz / 50g) Mayo (I use avocado mayo)
1 tsp Yellow or Dijon Mustard
2 dashes Hot sauce or Sriracha Sauce (optional)


  1. Bring a pot of water to boil.
  2. Submerge cabbage leaves into the boiling water until vegetables are soft and pliable (about 1 minute).
  3. Transfer leaves to a paper towel-lined plate and dry both sides of the leaves well.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients together.
  5. To assemble wraps, line half a cabbage leaf at the bottom, add these ingredients in this order: 1 slice of ham, a thin layer of dressing, 2 slices of chicken and 2 slices of cheese.
  6. Then, start rolling from your side towards the other end and serve immediately and enjoy.
  7. The other way to make this cabbage wrap, instead of rolling from one end to the other.  Line a whole cabbage leaf at the bottom, top it with 1 slice of ham, a thin layer of dressing, 2 slices of chicken and 2 slices of cheese. Fold up cabbage leaf from the bottom and from both left and right ends towards the center and roll.  Everything will be tugged in.
  8. If you are bringing this wrap on the go, wrap each cabbage wrap with plastic wrap.  Store the cabbage wrap(s) in the fridge for up to 3 days.
