Notes

This recipe was given to me by my cousin Vilma from Hawaii. When she visited LA, we took her to PF Chang's and we ordered Chicken Lettuce Wraps and she loved it! Here is a recipe that she's made several times that the family enjoyed. I hope you do too!

Thanks for the vegetarian alternative! This looks yummy. Cheers...

A dash of local for every season
