Lettuce Wraps

These crisp and crunchy lettuce wraps can feature your favorite fillings. In addition to being a delicious alternative to gluten-free sandwich wraps and bread, lettuce wraps add extra vitamins, nutrients, and hydration to your dietary routines. Plus, when you pack these in lunch boxes along with a small ice pack, they won’t get soggy! For those who can’t find large lettuce leaves, endives work just as well.

This recipe inspired in part or in whole from here


  1. What other sort of lettuce works for this?
    We could not get Romaine, so we bought normal green lettuce with the biggest leaves we could find.
    But the consistency seems a bit too thin.

    Other than that, it tasted great. We used as stuffing “chicken gyros” which you can buy here readily marinated. We roasted the meat and combined it warm with the wrap sauce. The meat gave the wraps a nice touch.

  2. Another thing that I like to do instead of wrap them in lettuce is to use endives. Since they are firm, they act as chips for dip!
