When preparing lettuce wraps, butter lettuce is the best option. The texture and shape of the leaves are ideal for holding the filling. Furthermore, the flavor is light and blends well with any filling.
Butter lettuce has a soft, buttery texture.
Romaine lettuce is crisp, almost watery.
Refrigerate any leftover lettuce wrap filling in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Refrigerate leftover lettuce separately; if you store them together will cause the lettuce to become soggy.
