Based on a popular Chinese dish, these fun wraps also make appealing appetizers for entertaining. Make it a meal: Serve with chile-garlic sauce and rice vinegar for extra zip; toss diced mango and strawberries with lime juice for a quick dessert.

I had to add my own flavor. Over all a great recipe.

Not crazy over these

Perhaps it needs more heat? i followed the recipe exactly asnit was written, and neither my husband or myself finished our meal. More spice? More zip? Needs something... Won't make again.

Fast, easy to make
Love this recipe

even my 8-year love these!!

Delicious and Easy!

This came out so awesome and it's perfect for someone who lives alone - a filling dinner and leftovers for lunch the next day or two. I added almost twice as much hoisen sauce & that added a lot more flavor. I only used cilantro for my herb & didn't feel like it was missing anything. I bet this would also be good with tofu substituted for the turkey...

Easy, easy, easy and tasty!!!

Made these last night and they were fantastic! Prepared, this recipe fed 3 people easily, with plenty of leftovers.

Buying all the ingredients for the 1st time can be somewhat expensive, but if you already have them in your pantry, then it's a pretty inexpensive dish to make.

I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of adding and extra tbsp. of hoison sauce, sriracha, and chili garlic sauce. Also added a dash of sea salt, but I could have achieved a little more saltiness with a tad more soy sauce. Also, I dashed some seasoned rice vinegar on the actual lettuce wraps once they were all put together. I used fresh cilantro and chives for my herb topping. Was quite spicy, but I'm a spicy kind of girl! Loved this recipe, will make it again!

Easy, tasty, healthy
