 Peanutty Asian Lettuce Wraps
“This recipe packs so much flavor into a beautiful, healthy presentation. I love to serve it as an hors d’oeuvre or as the main dish when I have folks over. It’s always a hit! I usually serve it with a little extra hoisin on the side.” —Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
