That way the romaine is very flexible and doesn't crack when you roll the leaf. Lay some thin meat slices and a bit of cheese, roll, and stuff into your mouth. Or be polite, stab with a toothpick, and put a few on a plate. Mine is usually the grab-and-go version.
Me too, CG...those do look good. I'd slice the 'cuke sub' into rounds though, for easier eating. I think by the time I got my mouth around that and bit down, all the goodies would squeeze out the side.

I love lettuce wraps too, one of my fave hot weather 'sandwiches'.

Out here there are a lot of restaurants that serve 'bread-less' sandwiches and use lettuce leaves. I like that they are starting to recognize people want options to bread.

I've discovered another way to make a breadless sandwich using thick slices of provolone and spreading egg, tuna, etc., salad on top..

It's really decadent with pimento cheese!


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
