Lettuce Cups Are Never Boring : Three Recipes To Try

Lettuce Cups can make a welcome change, and you will find the best greens for edible cups are sturdy head lettuces with thick ribs on each leaf. Examples include iceberg, bibb, Boston, and little gem (romaine and cos). Each leaf should be deep enough to hold the filling, and hardy enough not to wilt with heavy or warm additions. Give floppy, thin, or wilty lettuces a miss for these three recipe suggestions.
