How To Cut Iceberg Lettuce for Burgers + Sandwiches

To start, you will take a whole head of organic iceberg lettuce. I like to use organic so I know it is free of pesticides.

I peel off the outer 1 or 2 leaves so the remaining leaves have never been touched by unclean hands.

You will cut off the top 1/2″ of the head of iceberg lettuce. Then, you will gently peel apart the leaves in half, creating 2 lettuce buns. That’s it! So easy!

Depending on the size of your head of iceberg lettuce, you can get at least 2 other “buns” from the other edges.

Recipe Notes

Washing: I don't find the need to wash the inner leaves of iceberg lettuce, but feel free to wash yours if you prefer.
Making Ahead: When using for sandwiches, they travel great! I store my sandwich in a stasher bag, and it has kept for at least 8 hours in a cooler. No need to worry about bread getting soggy!
