In the swirling world of food trends, the grinder salad sandwich has been capturing the attention of foodies far and wide. Inspired by this mouth-watering phenomenon, I decided to create a version that’s not only packed with flavor but also kind to your carb count. Today, I’m sharing a low carb grinder salad wrap, a lighter take on the classic that doesn’t skimp on taste.
The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity and the freedom to use whatever you have on hand in your fridge. The base of our wrap starts with some staple ingredients that are easy to find and work wonderfully together.
Low Carb Grinder Salad Wrap
- Red onion thinly sliced
- Tomato chopped
- Three ounces of deli turkey thinly sliced
- Provolone cheese sliced
- A handful of chili peppers adjust based on your heat preference
- Romaine lettuce roughly chopped
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- Crushed red pepper flakes
- Dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Red wine vinegar
- A quarter cup of Greek yogurt
- Low carb tortilla wraps
- Begin by prepping your ingredients: slice your red onion and tomato, chop your romaine, and get your deli turkey and provolone cheese ready.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the red onion, tomato, turkey, provolone, and chili peppers. If you’re not a fan of spice, feel free to substitute the chili peppers with something milder.
- Add in the romaine lettuce, giving you that crunchy texture that’s essential in any good salad wrap.
- For the dressing, measure with your heart – sprinkle in some garlic, freshly grated Parmesan, a generous pinch of crushed red pepper, and plenty of oregano for that classic grinder flavor profile. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.
- Drizzle in some red wine vinegar for acidity and add a quarter cup of Greek yogurt. This is where the magic happens, transforming the ingredients with a creamy coating that’s both tangy and indulgent, yet surprisingly light.
- Toss everything together until the salad mixture is well coated with the dressing.
- Lay out a low carb tortilla and pile the salad mixture onto the center. Carefully wrap the tortilla around the filling, tucking in the edges as you roll to ensure a tight wrap.
- Slice the wrap in half to make it more manageable (and to show off that beautiful cross-section of ingredients!).
And voilà, your low carb grinder salad wrap is ready to be devoured! This recipe is perfect for a quick lunch, a light dinner, or even as a healthy grab-and-go option. It brings together a medley of flavors and textures that will satisfy your cravings without weighing you down.
So, the next time you’re in the mood for something fresh, flavorful, and fuss-free, give this low carb grinder salad wrap a try. It’s a testament to the fact that making healthier choices doesn’t mean you have to compromise on taste. Enjoy!
