Top Rated Lettuce Recipes

Yeah, yeah, the classic ratio of oil and vinegar in dressing is one part vinegar/acid to three parts oil. I do equal parts oil and lemon juice. Truth is, if I was ever to open a restaurant it would be called, Lemon and Salt. I go heavy with both (I've been told I should have a T-shirt that says, "Needs Salt"), especially with this dressing and these ingredients.You're going to like this salad. It's easy, it has character, and the textures work — soft dressing matched to soft and thinly sliced vegetables. It's a classic summer salad, but one to use during winter to remind you what to look forward to.This is the time to go with canned olives — you want a muted olive flavor that won't overpower the delicate lettuce. Leave the olives whole so you can stick 'em on your fingers like you did as a kid.

Asian Steak Lettuce Wraps
This healthy recipe is is easy enough to make on a weeknight, especially with the quick-cooking skirt steak. One of the benefits of skirt steak is that you don’t have to marinate it for a long time to get great flavor. A 20-minute dunk while you get the rest of the ingredients prepped is perfect.Recipe courtesy of Emily Paster, West of the Loop.

This unusual Calabrian salad is called mappina, a dialect word for dishrag — because the oil-cured lettuce is damp and limp.Adapted from The Country Cooking of Italy by Colman Andrews, (to be published in fall of 2011 by Chronicle Books.)

Romaine Lettuce Salad
Roasting garlic is my new favorite go-to for dinner parties. It's easy to do, especially when you're already roasting something in the oven. I simply remove top of the head, drizzle a little oil on top and a pinch of salt, and roast it for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees, until they're soft when pressed. (If you're setting it beside a roast, it never hurts to baste it in the pan drippings.)  As is, you can spread it on toast, eat it with roasted meats or fish, or add it to a dressing, like in this recipe. The garlicky dressing gives the crisp Romaine lettuce more depth and elevates it from the ordinary salad. If you don't have roasted garlic, you can also grate in fresh garlic instead (just  be warned that it will probably be much stronger).  Click here to see the Simple Ingredients Made Spectacular story.

Bibb Salad
The brightness of the lemon-mint dressing nicely balances out the slighty spicy bitterness of the watercress in this simple salad. Letting the salad sit for a few minutes before serving softens up the leaves as the lemony-mint dressing is soaked up. Blood oranges or any other type of citrus is a great addition for some added color. Try serving this dish with a simply cooked piece of white fish for a healthy, balanced meal.  Click here for Recipe SWAT Team: Healthy Greens.

Chicken and Apple Lettuce Wraps
As the weather warms up in most parts of the country, the season of picnics, barbecues, camping, and playing in the yard returns. It’s the perfect time to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature: the chirping birds, the sound of a distant lawnmower, and fireflies glowing in the dusk. We’ve created a recipe that we think pairs wonderfully with summertime, and it’s a cinch to pack for a picnic. This recipe makes eight servings (with four small lettuce wraps per serving), so if you have extra it’s great for leftovers too!Recipe courtesy of Juicy Juice.

Apricot Orange Chicken Lettuce Wraps
After working outside in 85-plus degree weather all day, and coming into this awesome and healthy meal, you'll be in heaven. This meal is slightly spicy, citrusy, delicious, and refreshing! Best of all, it's not too bad for you!I threw this dinner together while my 2-year-old ate her lunch and stuck it on high. It looks so pretty in the slow cooker (I know, I'm weird!). It was ready five hours later! This is definitely something I would make over and over again and even for company.One small warning — they are very juicy and you will need plenty of napkins as you're eating them. My husband ate his on tortillas instead of lettuce and it was less of a mess. You can stick to the healthy version with the lettuce, or use the tortilla like he did!Onto the good stuff...See all wrap recipes.
