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.
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.
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.
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.....

8 Chicken Slices from the deli counter
8 American White Cheese Slices from the deli counter
