What lettuce is best for these lettuce cups?
There are several varieties of lettuce and really you can use any kind you like. There are a few that I prefer for these lettuce cups though.
  • Butter Lettuce
  • Green Leaf
  • Romaine
My first choice will always be the butter lettuce. I love the flavor it adds to these lettuce cups.
