California Burger Wraps

I love the way these fresh flavors blend together. It's a snap to throw this together using leftover burgers for a quick, healthy lunch. The burgers can also be served on buns. —Rachelle McCalla, Batesville, Arkansas

      Absolutely delicious and I didn’t miss the bread at all. I loved the way the drippings from the burger added a nice warmed taste to the lettuce. I used Romaine and it worked fine. One can really dress this one up. VFE. Happy to be the first one stamping this one a healthy winner.
