Lettuce Salad Wraps 

Ladies and Gentlemen here’s a delicious idea to give your meal a nutritious start…It’s so wonderfully vibrant it is edible art! 


  • Lettuce head with large leaves. We used Batavia, though Cos could work well too.
  • Julienned or thinly sliced salad vegetables.
  • Salt/pepper to taste
  • Cocktail sticks
  • Favourite dip/sauce (optional)

First wash out your leaves and lay them out flat..

Then lay salad items in strips…just like that! 

We used julienned, cucumber, carrot, red onion and pepper too. Though you could add any fillings that you wish to.   

Sprinkle a little salt and pepper for extra spice and roll the green leaf up like a wrap, oh it looks so nice!   

We always find piercing a cocktail stick through the middle helps it to stay, so your delicious crunchy centres don’t unfold away.
Voila! There we go our wraps are ready and complete, ready for a delicious healthy bite to eat 👌 
Here’s another tasty tip…Why not serve our lettuce wraps alongside your favourite  sauce or dip?
