~ Lettuce wraps are a great way to introduce picky eaters to lettuce.  Of course, use a filling you know they’ll like.  Any combination that sounds appealing to your kids (or you) will work. All you need are a couple of large romaine leaves & something to roll up. You can either incorporate a dressing into the wrap, or have a dip on the side.

 For those with various food restrictions, this recipe falls into the following categories:

Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Nut Free, Sugar Free, Grain Free, Vegan, Raw

Of course, you can build these wraps to fit any dietary restriction imaginable.
