Lettuce is great in salads and on sandwiches, but lettuce can be so much more interesting when it’s holding something.
Lettuce is great in salads and on sandwiches, but lettuce can be so much more interesting when it’s holding something. You’ve seen lettuce wraps at fancy Asian restaurants. Why not try making them at home with fresh lettuce from your garden?
Lettuce wraps work best when you use large, crisp lettuce leaves. Iceberg can fit the bill, but it’s lack of flavor and nutrients make it a last choice in my book. Try something greener and more flavorful, like romaine or different leaf lettuce varieties.
Asian flavors match well with the style and expectation of this dish, but a lettuce wrap can taste anyway you want it to.
Here are some lettuce wrap filling recipes I recommend:
- Italian Chicken Salad (my favorite!)
- Asian Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps
- Greek Chicken Lettuce Wraps
- Mexican Lettuce Wraps
- Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps
- Turkey Salad Lettuce Wraps
