Heirloom BLT wraps with Lemon Mayo

I always think BLT’s are a great way to keep eating the meat of the Gods, AKA bacon, in the hot summer months. I lightened up this classic by using wheat wraps instead of bread and a lemon mayo. Here’s what you’ll need for this concoction:
 Bacon.  About 3 strips per wrap

       Shredded Lettuce. One handful per wrap

Heirloom Tomato. 1 medium tomato should do ya

                             Wheat wraps. Obviously one per wrap

Lemon. One large lemon-juice and zest.

Mayonnaise. 1heaping TBPS. -I like this mayo made with olive oil.

Salt and Pepper. 1  generous pinch of each.

  1.  Cook your bacon to desired crispness- I prefer my bacon on the crisp side for a BLT.   Remove bacon from the grease - set aside to drain on a paper towel.
  2. While your bacon cooks mix together the lemon, mayo, and salt and pepper
  3. Cut your tomato into wedges
  4. Shred your lettuce-I prefer to chop mine into strips
  5. Spread the lemon mayo onto your wrap
  6. Layer your lettuce, bacon, then tomato wedges on top
  7. Wrap it up and eat it.
I find the lemon mayo really makes this.  It’s one of my favorite things to put on a sandwich or wrap in the summer-it really brightens up all of the flavors and makes the salty delicious-ness of the bacon even better.
