Dear Barbara: I am on a low carb diet, and I want to make lettuce wraps. Can you tell me what kind of lettuce is used for the wraps? — Kelly from Lodi

Dear Kelly:  I personally like butter lettuce because it is easier to “wrap,” but that is just my own opinion. I did a little research and looked up a number of lettuce wrap recipes to see what lettuce seemed to be used the most. Iceberg, Boston, green leaf and butter lettuce seemed the most used, the favorites being iceberg and butter. Asian wraps seemed to use more iceberg. It does give them a nice crispness, but I think it is hard to roll, which is probably why some of the softer lettuces — like butter lettuce — are used a lot. If you are going to use the lettuce for lettuce cups, and not roll them, I would use iceberg because it holds its shape better. Lettuce wraps are nice, because you can be very creative, and wrap most anything. I am sure you will have fun with them!
