Turkey BLT Wraps

Turkey BLT wraps are a healthy lunch with flavor and crunch.

Turkey BLT wraps are a healthy lunch with flavor and crunch.

While the bacon and tomato are usually the star of the BLT, the lettuce is an important 1/3 of the BLT equation. Using fresh (LOCAL!) lettuce on a BLT adds crunch, texture and fresh flavor to the salty bacon and tangy tomato. Romaine can add extra crispiness, while butter lettuce adds a bit of sweetness with a creamy texture.

No matter what type of lettuce you prefer, make sure it’s fresh. Fresh produce has more nutrients than the other stuff that’s been sitting on a store shelf for two weeks.

Ingredients: 

  • Revolution Farms Robust Romaine, or Beautiful Bibb lettuce - whichever you prefer

  • Six strips of bacon

  • Four slices of deli turkey breast

  • Freshly sliced tomatoes

  • Mayo, or salad dressing of your choice

  • Sandwich wraps

  • OPTIONAL - red onion, avocado, cheese…the options are endless!

 

Preparation: 

  1. Cook bacon until crispy, then cool

  2. Assemble all ingredients on wrap, starting with turkey

  3. Add dressing

  4. Wrap and secure with toothpicks if necessary

  5. To serve as an appetizer, cut wraps into one inch slices and serve on platter with toothpicks
