Try lettuce wraps instead of using bread for sandwiches at your next picnic

0 5

While making a sandwich is as simple as layering bread with fillings and adding another piece of bread, lettuce wraps require different techniques. The best types of lettuce for wraps have a large leafy surface area and minimal central rib. A thick, crunchy rib, while texturally delicious, will impede smooth rolling.

Parchment paper and tin foil are ideal options for transporting lettuce wraps, and they also aid in rolling them up. You’ll need to use a few leaves, overlapping yet staggered to create a sturdy outer shell with enough length to wrap. The layering technique starts with veggie toppings, then deli or other meats, followed by condiments; you can put any condiments on top of another lettuce leaf to keep the layers more or less in place. The meats will create a solid, sturdy core while cementing the loose toppings in place by compressing them into the layers of lettuce. The condiments inside the meat will act as the glue to which you’ll attach the last smaller, center leaf. Topping everything off with a small leaf will keep all the layers in place once you’ve rolled everything up.

Use parchment paper or tin foil to guide you as you roll the wrap, sushi-style. A tighter wrap will create the most cohesive and secure lettuce wrap.
