Lettuce tacos? Why not, try them

I seem to be talking about tacos a lot lately, but that’s because I’m again enjoying them after finding a way to make them low-salt and low-fat. Using lettuce as the outer skin for a taco gets a lot of attention online, but I had never tried it until lately.

My verdict — I liked it and likely will try it again. True, there is shredded lettuce in the ingredients I put in, so it’s a bit like having a lettuce sandwich, but there are enough other ingredients to balance that out and keep it tasty.

I created my lettuce taco with this variety from Costco, which advertises it's well-suited to use for wraps.

I used romaine lettuce hearts, a variety Costco sells that advertises on its packaging that it’s well-suited for wraps. It really was, the leaves are crisp and hold their own when filling is added. You can see one here along with my other alternative wraps, which I’ve written about before, a low-salt soft tortilla and one I tried to shape into a hard taco shell with mixed results.

This experience will get me to try to wrap other things in the romaine heart leaves, send me ideas that you’ve tried.
