At first, I was using iceberg lettuce only. (Don't want to scar the kids right off the bat.) But a couple of nights ago I decided to take the plunge and use collard AND iceberg lettuce.
They totally loved it! Gobbled it right up! I can't help but think that the pickles are what makes the kids love these sandwiches so much. (We get non-heated or vinegarized pickles from the health food store.)
Here's the simple recipe:
Chicken (or other meat), sliced
1. Spread some mayo on one half of the iceberg lettuce leaf.
2. Place meat, pickles and anything else inside.
3. Place other half of iceberg lettuce on top.
4. Wrap with a collard leaf, keeping one end open.
Other additions can be used too, of course. Such as olives, sauerkraut, tomatoes, and anything else you like your sandwiches to have.
