I love the light taste of lettuce wraps and I usually make them with an traditional oriental flavor but when I discovered this version I actually like it better. It is like a fajita without the heaviness of a tortilla. Great for a quick summer meal. The combination of the lettuce and the spices are incomparable. Try this you will love it and so will your diet!
