Lettuce wraps make this recipe naturally gluten-free, low-carb, keto, and paleo, whole30 & dairy-free with a dairy free greek yogurt.  More lettuce wraps I love are BLT Lettuce WrapsBuffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps, and Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

I found two to fill me up, but the calories are low enough you could easily eat three. Using a good quality tuna in oil makes all the difference in flavor here.

I made the avocado yogurt dressing in my magic bullet, it makes a larger portion than is needed in this recipe
but it can easily be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator and used a veggie or cracker dip, salad topper or drizzled over grilled fish.

If you’re not familiar with hearts of palm, they come canned or in a glass container available at Trader Joes or in most supermarkets. They make a great addition to salads.

How To Make Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps are low-carb, keto, gluten-free and low calorie, and don’t interfere with the flavors of the filling. A few tips when making lettuce wraps:

  • Look for lettuce leaves that are large enough to hold the filling.
  • I also like to using iceberg lettuce for larger cups. Romaine lettuce and baby romaine are also great.
  • If you prefer, you can turn this into a big chopped salad by simply serving this over a bowl over chopped lettuce.
