Club Lettuce Wraps

One meal we love during the summer is wraps. They're so versatile, you can stuff pretty much any sort of topping into a tortilla shell and call it good. I love making them when it's hot and I don't want to warm up the house anymore, they're great to take along to the ball games and it's a generally lighter meal when the last thing you want to do is eat.

I picked up a few different varieties of lettuce at our farmers' market this past weekend, with these exactly in mind. We've got a few busy weeks coming up as the girls are preparing for their big end of the year dance performance. While we're running back and forth between practices I figured some easy meals like these wraps would do us some good.

Plus now that it's shorts and tanks weather, I figured it won't hurt me to start eating a little lighter. Those extra pounds sure do creep up during the winter!

Club Lettuce Wraps

1/2 lb. ham
1/2 lb. smoked turkey
1 lb. bacon, cooked
Large lettuce leaves
sliced tomato
sliced avocado

Clean lettuce and pat dry with a paper towel.  Place one to two pieces of lettuce onto a plate; add a slice of ham, two slices of turkey and one piece of bacon (broken in half) to the center of the lettuce. Place your desired toppings over meat. Add ranch dressing, mustard or mayo on top if desired. Gently pull the lettuce around the toppings and cut in half. Secure with a toothpick if needed. Repeat with remaining ingredients, makes 6-8 wraps.
