What Kind Of Lettuce Works Best For Lettuce Wraps?

There’s a few different kinds of lettuce to choose from. Butter lettuce or Boston Bibb is perfect because it’s soft and flexible, so it won’t crack or break when you go to wrap up these lettuce wraps.

You can also use Romain hearts which are firmer but you can eat them without actually wrapping them up. The crunchy, sweet texture that Romaine lettuce has makes it a great base for these lettuce wraps!
