How do you make a Ham and Lettuce Wrap?
The first step is to layer several lettuce leaves overlapping one another, this creates your “tortilla” you will build your wrap on. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, mustard and chopped dill pickle to create the savory spread.Spread the sauce on the lettuce just like you would a tortilla or slice of bread.
Top with one slice of Swiss cheese. Add ham slices, red onion, and tomato slices down the center of the wrap. Top with salt and pepper. Roll very tightly and slice down the center. All done!
How many carbs are in ham?
When starting a keto diet it can be hard to understand what is permitted and what is not. Ham is one of those tricky ingredients. A smoked ham is perfectly fine, as it is naturally low in carbs. However, other varieties such as Honey Ham would not work, because the glaze is too high in carbs. When doing your grocery shopping just be mindful of the carbs in the deli meat you choose.

Lettuce is naturally low carb! It is also packed with other nutrients, depending on the type of lettuce you choose. This is why I love to use it for my wraps!
