      I made this tonight for guests and we all really enjoyed it. I used regular leaf lettuce and they wrapped great. I will make this again, thanks for posting!

      This is a great tasting salad, although the wrapping part didn't really work for me. I used romaine lettuce which i would not recommend. The core (center vein) is a little too hard and therefore tends to break when you try to wrap the leaf around the carrot/asparagus. I would recommend you use the softer butter lettuce leaves. The crunch of the carrot with the flavor of the asparagus made this fun salad. Thanks!
