One of the things I have missed is bread. Bread and I were best buddies. I decided to not look for a replacement but instead look for another way of eating. For me lettuce wraps were a wonderful way to eat sandwich style ingredients in a healthy way. I love butter lettuce and for me it makes a perfect wrap because the leaves are pliable. I also love the mild taste of butter lettuce after all, the word butter must be a good thing!
Lettuce wraps with Tuna and Avocado
1 can Tuna
6 large butter lettuce leaves
2 slices onion
Pink Himalayan salt
Fresh ground pepper
Wash lettuce and pat dry. Drain tuna, flake and put into a medium mixing bowl. Chop avocado and add to the bowl. Add chopped onion and seasonings. Add the juice of 1/2 the lime. Mix gently. Take one lettuce leaf and spoon 1/6th of the mixture into the center of the leaf. Place on plate. Continue with the five other lettuce leaves. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
This is delicious! I am glad it makes the amount it does, as it was a perfect amount for two. So fresh and delicious. I didn't miss the mayo since the avocado is creamy. The butter lettuce is strong enough to hold the filling, too, so it is not messy at all.
Perfect spring meal!
