Lettuce wraps recipes - 4 recipes

By Lingonberrylane

Lettuce wraps are a healthy alternative to bread, buns and tortillas. Lettuce provides a light and refreshing crispness to a variety of dishes, especially during the warmer months. Make sure to use a strong and pliable lettuce to support your ingredients. I like to use bibb lettuce, romaine, iceberg or cabbage. Ditch the hamburger bun and serve you next burger in a large leafy green. Wrap tacos or fajitas in lettuce, create Thai lettuces wraps with a peanut or sweet chili sauce or top your lettuce with tuna or chicken salad! The possibilities are endless!
