California Collard Sub

Nothing I love more than a low carb California Collard Sub. Everything I love about a sandwich all wrapped up in a nutritious collard wrap! These are low car, keto, gluten-free, and dairy-free. 

 

How much was I missing sandwiches this week, well enough to come up with my own version, haha! When there’s a will there’s a way! California Collard Sub has everything I love in sub sandwiches but it’s healthier and a whole lot fewer carbs. 

Can I sub Lettuce for the Collard? 

Yes, collards have a taste some people just don’t love. My favorite lettuce to use is butter leaf, it’s soft and doesn’t break easily, a pretty much the perfect bread substitute. If you can not find butter leaf romaine hearts are my next go to, love the crispiness they have. Lettuce wraps of all kinds are a great option if you are looking to lower your carb intake. 

How to make California Collard Sub

Collard leaves can be tuff in texture, you want to start by blanching them in hot water for a few seconds it will loosen them up. Next, take a knife down the spine and remove the stem. 

Start by spreading your mayo, layer your chicken and ham slices, tomato, avocado, pink salt, and chili flakes, and lastly your bacon. Roll halfway up from the side you laid your meat down on, then fold the sides in like you would a burrito and finish rolling. 

You can eat it as a handheld, or cut it in half and use toothpicks to stabilize it.
