Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 slices (2 ounces) Canadian bacon, diced
  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, outer leaves removed and discarded
  • 4 ounces smoked deli turkey breast slices, sliced into bite-size pieces
  • 1 large beefsteak tomato (about 3/4 pound), cored and cubed
  • 1/2 large peeled avocado, pitted and cubed
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely diced
  • 8 teaspoons crumbled blue cheese

Preparation


1. Combine mayonnaise, vinegar, and pepper; set aside.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat pan with cooking spray. Cook bacon until crisp (5-6 minutes), stirring occasionally. Remove bacon from skillet; pat with paper towels.

3. Carefully separate 8 large leaves from lettuce head (do not tear) to use as wraps; reserve remaining lettuce for another use. Place 1 lettuce leaf inside another to create 4 (2-layered) wraps; fill with about 1/4 cup turkey breast, 1/4 of the cubed tomato (about 1/4 cup), 1/4 cup cubed avocado, and 2 tablespoons diced onion. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon reserved dressing; top with 1/4 of the crisped bacon and 2 teaspoons crumbled blue cheese.
