Ranch BLT Lettuce Wraps

Bacon is clearly my favorite, but my recipes don’t have to be too unhealthy. Right? When I was on the Whole 30, I ditched the carbs and bread and ate all my favorites on large leafy romaine. Tacos, hamburgers, BLTs…everything was enjoyed on lettuce. I kind of kept up this habit even after those thirty days. Bread, to me, feels unnecessary. It fills me up, and I end up feeling kind of gross. So, I try to just skip the bread and I make my favorites in between lettuce leaves.

The combination of bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, CHEESE, and ranch dressing is one of my favorite summer lunches. I crave this all the time, and I would be thrilled to eat this at every meal. I mean, why not? Since I discovered the joy of shredding my own cheese (see my garlic rosemary chicken salad recipe for this revelation), I decided to try Cabot’s White Oak Cheddar for this week’s lunch. It didn’t disappoint.

Low Carb BLT


I start with crispy, oven-baked bacon. I divide a few slices between two large leaves of romaine, and I start adding my toppings.

This variety of cheese pairs well with the smoky bacon flavor. I used Marzetti Simply Dressed Ranch Salad Dressing, but you can add whatever you have on hand. I’ve also topped this with blue cheese, Italian dressing, and even a vinaigrette. You would be surprised at the variety of flavors you can create with a simple BLT!
