De-constructed Lettuce Wraps...A Dave Fave!!

A new take on the old Lettuce Wraps!!

Today we planned to have one of our favorite meals: Lettuce Wraps...with our favorite Asian-inspired coleslaw.  We set about preparing the dinner and much to our dismay, we discovered that our Butter Lettuce had frozen in the fridge.  Big Bummer.  Nothing is worse than frozen, translucent lettuce!  So, I decided to compromise...

De-constructed Lettuce Wraps
Using the recipe from my earlier post for Lettuce Wraps, prepare the Ground Chicken as directed.  While the  meat is browning, prepare the following Coleslaw recipe:

1 bag Coleslaw ready shredded cabbage
1/3 bottle of Lighthouse Toasted Sesame Ginger dressing

Mix slaw and dressing together.  Set aside.

Julienne carrots and green onions into matchsticks for toppings.

Once your meat is prepared as directed for Lettuce Wraps, turn off the heat.

Place about 1 cup mixed slaw in the bottom of the bowl.  Top with about 1/2 cup ground chicken mixture.  Top with carrots and green onions.

We were so pleasantly surprised by this dish...Dave immediately declared it one of his favorites!!
