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.
Use your lettuce buns to make the most amazing lettuce wrapped burgers or sandwiches. The iceberg gives it the perfect crunch. You won’t even miss the bread!
Bonus? It is practically calorie free, whole30 + keto!
