It’s official. I am addicted to lettuce wraps! I cannot describe just how tasty this particular ‘sandwich wrap’ was. I’ve been harking back to days of yore when I used to order sandwiches at the milk bar and remembering the classic, quintessential Aussie Salad Sandwich. Packed full of delicious veggies and the key ingredient – beetroot, it really is quite a healthy treat, minus the bread of course…. So here is my gluten-free, primal version. Simply omit the cheese to make it full paleo!

INGREDIENTS (enough to make one enormous wrap)

. 2 – 3 large Cos lettuce leaves
. 2 slices ham
. 4 slices of tomato
. 4 slices cucumber
. 1/2 carrot, grated
. 2 tbspn grated cheese
. 1/4 avocado, sliced
. diced beetroot
. salt and pepper

METHOD

1. Place 1 – 2 Cos lettuce leaves onto sheet of alfoil
2. Layer with ham, grated cheese and carrot, sliced tomato, sliced cucumber, avocado and beetroot, season with salt and pepper
3. Top with remaining Cos lettuce leaf
4. Roll up, cut into two and enjoy!

These gluten-free wraps will help me stay in my skinny jeans for sure, lol!
