L.O.V.E. Wrap Sandwich

The Beatles nearly missed me. Sure, I like their music but as I wasn’t born until 1969, I missed the hysteria. As my parents had moved on to California music (Beach Boys), folk (Peter, Paul and Mary and the Kingston Trio) and later country (Willie and Waylon), I could have gone much of my childhood without listening to them. Luckily they were ever present on the radio.

I can recall one sunny December morning when I was in sixth-grade, I left my house for school and passed by a neighbor where the Beatles music was playing loudly. It seemed kinda strange to me because I hadn’t heard before I left that John Lennon had been shot the night before. When I came home from school, I once again passed by the house and more Beatles music was playing. This time it was “All You Need is Love”. As soon as it ended, it started up again. Everyone mourns in their own way.

I cannot but help to hear the song in my mind when I see the title of this recipe. And I was thinking that was all I needed!

A nice mixture of ingredients.

Making the egg salad.

Prepping the wraps.

L.O.V.E. Wrap Sandwich (Lettuce, Onion, Vegetable, Egg Salad)

Prep Time: 20 min | Makes: 4 servings | Difficulty: Easy


  • 8 hard-boiled eggs
  • 4 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 pieces whole-wheat wrap bread (9 inches in diameter)
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 12 thin slices red onion
  • 8 leaves romaine lettuce, torn into pieces (about 1/2 cup)


Dice 4 whole eggs and 4 egg whites and put into a small bowl. Add the mayonnaise and mustard and stir with a fork, mashing somewhat for desired consistency. Stir in chives and season with salt and pepper. Place wrap bread on a plate and spread the egg salad in the middle. Top with the peppers, onion slices and the lettuce. Fold into a wrap sandwich.

    I would have to substitute the bell pepper with something else, a bit more onion, or a nice grated cheese, due to food allergy. I like bell pepper, but it (sadly) does not care much for me.
