FAQs

Can I make this wrap ahead of time?

  • Yes, you can prepare the components ahead of time but assemble the wrap close to serving to maintain the best texture.

What can I use instead of pork rind croutons?

  • For a less adventurous option, make low-carb bread croutons or simply omit them for a lighter version.

Is there a vegetarian alternative to the salmon?

  • Replace the salmon with chickpeas or grilled tofu to keep the protein high and maintain a meat-free option.

How can I store leftovers?

  • It’s best to store the dressing, salad, and other components separately and assemble just before eating to keep everything fresh.
