Enjoy your salad on-the-go with this low carb Cobb salad wrap. It’s diet-friendly, keto-friendly and life-friendly; perfect for those busy days when eating healthy is hard.

The Cobb salad is notorious for its hearty and delicious toppings; crispy crumbled bacon, hard-boiled eggs, lean chicken, creamy avocado and diced tomatoes. We took those beloved toppers and stuffed them into a keto-friendly lettuce wrap that’s a portable protein powerhouse. With only two net carbs per serving, it will quickly become your favorite grab-and-go meal!

To make this low carb lunch, start by sautéing ground chicken in olive oil over medium heat. Once it’s fully cooked, set it aside and prepare the filling by chopping up hard-boiled eggs, avocado, tomatoes and cooked bacon. Lay out two lettuce leaves on four separate plates and fill each one equally with the chicken and filling ingredients. Roll up the wraps and enjoy your convenient Cobb creation!

Pro Tip: If you’d like, you can use baked or grilled chicken breast instead of ground chicken as a healthy alternative. A red wine vinegar dressing would also be delicious and add extra flavor with very little calories.
