Everyone loves sandwiches! But the keto diet does not allow traditional wheat bread since it is loaded with carbs. Luckily, lettuce is here to save the day. One cup of lettuce contains just 1.5 grams of net carbs, making it the perfect substitute for bread. What's more, lettuce is also low in calories, perfect if you're watching your calories.

To make this Lettuce Sandwich Wrap, we seared chicken breast until golden, then tucked it into romaine lettuce leaves. We also added a few slices of organic turkey and English cucumbers to add a bright and refreshing flavor to the lettuce sandwich wrap. It is topped with a simple yet flavorful mayonnaise-based dressing, then rolled up and secured with scallions, so it doesn't fall apart. Overall, this lettuce sandwich wrap will keep you satiated without adding carbs to your diet.
