How to Create Gluten-Free Antipasto Lettuce Wraps

Belgian endive leaves were created to hold stuff. They’re naturally boat-shaped and beg for a filling, which makes them a perfect, gluten-free substitute for sandwich bread. You can eat these wraps right away, but they’re even better if you cover and refrigerate the filling for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend.
