Asian style lettuce cups
Healthy Lettuce Cups for Summer Gatherings
Delicious and bursting with flavour, these Asian style lettuce cups are perfect served as a healthy lighter meal. We also like to use smaller lettuce cups to create bite sized tasty morsels, and serve on a large platter at the next Summer BBQ gathering. If you like to add a bit of heat be plentiful with the chilli.
