Turkey Cranberry Wrap

There aren’t too many things easier to throw together than a wrap, which is why there are two different wrap recipes in this series: these very Turkey Cranberry Wraps and these Caesar Chicken Wraps. Both are equally simple, totally satiating, and sure to be a household hit!

These wraps are inspired by the deli section at my local grocery store (Smith’s/Kroger) — the kiddos and I grabbed these on our way out for a picnic one day and immediately knew a re-creation was in order! They’re deeply savory with a great tartness from the cranberries and the perfect amount of sweetness from the dressing.

Turkey Cranberry Wrap Ingredients

  • Flour tortillas. We love these unbaked tortillas by TortillaLand® (not sponsored). They are generally found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store near cheeses, and are the best flavor-wise. They have a great texture and ensure these Turkey Cranberry Wraps taste light and fresh. If using prepared tortillas, warm them under a damp paper towel for 10 seconds in the microwave before using them.
  • Cream cheese spread. Any cream cheese spread works — use lite cream cheese spread for fewer calories, a flavored (chive and green onion) for some sharpness, or plain cream cheese spread for traditional flavor.
  • Deli turkey. We like using a good, freshly sliced deli turkey for these Turkey Cranberry Wraps — Boar’s Head® is our personal favorite.
  • Crisp lettuce. We use green leaf lettuce for these wraps; romaine will also work.
  • White Cheddar cheese. Sargento® aged white cheddar is a favorite in these wraps. Gouda or Muenster is also quite good in these wraps!
  • Dried sweetened cranberries. The sweetened cranberries add a burst of tartness and a touch of sweetness to these savory Turkey Cranberry Wraps. They pair nicely with the turkey and cream cheese.
  • Dressing. More on this below.


Process shots: spread cream cheese on the tortilla; layer on lettuce followed by turkey and cheese.

Let’s Chat Dressing

You’ll want to dunk your Turkey Cranberry Wrap in a dressing and there are a few options here:

  1. Store-bought dressing (quickest option): Ken’s® Sweet Vidalia Dressing is a pretty tasty option. We did try the lite version and didn’t enjoy it nearly as much.
  2. Quick homemade dressing: We love a poppy seed dressing with these wraps — the poppy seed dressing on this Strawberry Poppy Seed Salad is a huge favorite!
  3. Homemade dressing that takes a bit more prep. For a homemade sweet onion dressing, try this recipe.


Process shots: Sprinkle cranberries over the lettuce, meat and cheese; roll up tightly.
