  • 1 piece of large leaf lettuce
  • 24 tablespoons of selected sauce (see notes)
  • 3 slices all-natural turkey or chicken, thinly sliced
  • 45 slices all-natural salami
  • 45 grape tomatoes sliced
  • 23 slices red onion, halved
  • 1 handful green onions, finely sliced
  • 23 tablespoons avocado, diced (unless using guacamole as the sauce)
  • Pepper as desired


  1. Place lettuce leaf on the work surface right side facing down (so that you are looking at the inside of the leaf). Carefully drizzle approximately 2 tablespoons of sauce on the lettuce leaf, and then place the sliced turkey/chicken on top. Add the salami and then garnish with tomatoes, onions, and avocado. Top with another 1-2 tablespoons of sauce to hold everything together.
  2. To assemble the wrap, place the leaf lettuce so that the spine of the lettuce is going from left to right and the soft edges of the lettuce are placed top to bottom. Then fold the left and right sides in, working against the spine (it may crack a little – this is okay). Depending on the leafy greens you use, as you fold the left and right sides in, the softer top and bottom edges may naturally fold in, too. From there you can bring all the edges together, like you’re wrapping a present, and roll. If you have trouble getting the correct wrap-roll, please visit the link at the bottom of the post for a video tutorial from another food blogger who has it down pat!


Amounts used for sauce are approximations because you only need enough to lightly coat the lettuce and hold the additional ingredients in. Too much sauce, and you’ll have a soggy mess. Not enough, and you’ll have a wrap fall apart at the seams. I also approximate the mix-ins based on the size of the leaf lettuce. Your wrap made need more or fewer slices of tomato and onion, for example, than mine do. And as for those sauces, check the bulleted list in the post for inspiration!
