Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs tweaking But Great idea! Im a big fan of lettuce cups becasue I think they are a great healthy no carb snack or appetizer. I am glad to find a recipe for lettuce cups other than the traditional asian recipe. However I found that the olives in this recipe tasted kinda weird with the cilantro and other ingredients so I would leave them out. If you are going for true cuban you should add raisins or golden raisins
