Remember when P.F. Chang's Lettuce Wraps hit the food scene? They were, and still are, a hit. And what's really amazing about them is that lettuce has become a culinary rock star when it comes to wraps and healthier eating. Yes. Lettuce. Lettuce is now a "bun" and a "tortilla," figuratively speaking.
Lettuce is low in calories and contains calcium, dietary fiber, iron, manganese, and potassium, just to name a few benefits. And with a variety of lettuces that offer varying tastes and textures, you always have fresh options for different wraps.
Boston butter head lettuce is soft and smooth, iceberg lettuce is crisp and sturdy, green leaf lettuce is tender, and romaine lettuce is long, slender, and crunchy.
Here is a healthy dish to make, perfect for a lunch that won't weigh you down or make you feel sluggish.
