A tangy, nutty tahini dressing brings together no-cook ingredients like canned chickpeas and roasted red peppers for these easy meal-prep lettuce wraps. Make these wraps ahead of time for a grab-and-go lunch or dinner. A few wedges of warm pita finish off the meal perfectly.

Absolutely delicious. Easy to make. Very indulgent with quite a bit of sauce (mainly the tahini and olive oil). You could almost add a third can of garbanzo beans and have this for 6 servings.
