It's Tuesday again, and that means another recipe for Turkey Tuesdays! Have any of you been making a point of having turkey on your menu on Tuesdays during the month of September?
This one is my very own creation. After trying an assigned recipe and not being thrilled with it, I wanted to create something I liked that had the same flavors going on...and Smoked Turkey and Cranberry Slaw Wrap was born!
I prefer smoked turkey as a choice for turkey deli meat over oven roasted or honey flavored. I think it has better flavor and texture than turkey deli meat that isn't smoked. I also think it keeps longer once you bring it home from the store. Maybe it's my imagination.
I used smoked deli turkey meat in this wrap and recreated a wonderful salad I had purchased from Costco a few weeks back to add to the wrap. OH MY...so good!
The slaw is a combination of broccoli slaw, raw pepitas, and dried cranberries dressed with a poppyseed dressing (I used Kraft). The flavors go PERFECTLY with the smoked turkey and there is a good deal of crunch going on too! It is all snuggly wrapped into a low carb tortilla. This wrap made my mouth very happy! The slaw is so good it can stand on it's own too, as a side dish.
I discovered a new low-in-carb wrap. (This is the tortilla wrap I used in this wrap recipe) They are soft and not rubbery at all. They are 60 calories, 2 g fat, 13g carbs, 5g protein, and 7g fiber each. They have good flavor. Yes, like most low carb wraps...they do have some not so natural preservatives in them...which doesn't thrill me. You can use whatever wrap you like to make this recipe, just keep in mind THIS is the wrap I used and calculated nutrition information from, so nutritional values may change if you use a different product.

1 1/2 cups broccoli slaw
2 TBS raw pepitas
1/4 cup dried cranberries
- In a small bowl, combine the broccoli slaw, pepitas, cranberries, and poppyseed dressing. Mix well.

- Cut in half, if desired, and enjoy!
This was so darn good, I think I am going to have this several times this week for lunch! Like I mentioned, the slaw really could stand on it's own as a side. The sweet pop from the cranberries and the crunch from the broccoli slaw and pepitas make a winning combination!
