Crunchy Thai Lettuce Wraps

Crunchy Thai Lettuce Wraps

I’m over the winter. Can we pretend that it’s summer? And that we’re on vacation?

I don’t know what it is about these thai lettuce wraps, but they take me there. You know where.

That super fun, relaxing place where you can be carefree and have Sriracha on your chin and not even care? Yup, there.

These thai lettuce wraps are super simple to make, and you can be as creative as you want with the toppings. Swap the chicken for shrimp, or forgo meat completely for a vegetarian meal. Add shredded carrots instead of the zucchini. You get the idea. I love serve-it-yourself type dishes, like sushi and tacos, and this one is right up there.

      Hi Cheryl, thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed the segment! Here’s a link to the peanut sauce I love: http://www.thaiandtrue.com/Peanut-Sauce_p_14.html. Like I mentioned, it’s a local company and I believe I purchased this bottle at New Seasons. Let me know what you think! 🙂
