Lettuce Wraps
This is easily one of my most requested recipes. It is a very popular staff lunch choice, and I always look forward to eating it as well as making it. Colorful, flavorful, unusual, fun to eat, good leftovers, easy to freeze and reheat--what's not to love?!!

Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. oil on high. Add ground chicken, diced onion, and grated carrot. Cook until chicken is nearly done, stirring often to break up the meat.
  2. Meanwhile, in a microwave safe bowl or glass mixing cup, combine sesame oil, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, rice vinegar, and chili garlic sauce. Microwave for 30 seconds to soften the honey and peanut butter, then stir until well mixed.
  3. Add minced garlic and ginger to the chicken mixture and cook a minute or two more or until fragrant. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour peanut butter mixture into the skillet and stir well to coat the chicken mixture.
  5. Add red pepper, green onion, and water chestnuts to the skillet and cook for 2-4 more minutes or until everything is heated through.
  6. Rinse the lettuce leaves, pat dry, and put on a plate or in a bowl. Put chopped peanuts in a separate bowl, and chicken mixture in a third serving bowl.
  7. To eat, scoop chicken mixture onto a lettuce leaf and top with peanuts. Top with more chili garlic paste if desired. Wrap "burrito style" and enjoy the messy goodness! (I often serve rice with these too, either to put into the lettuce wrap or to catch all the tidbits that fall out on the plate!)

Basil Orange Salad Dressing

Basil Orange Salad Dressing

I’ve served this at several occasions over the past few years, and I always end up needing to share the recipe!  I found the original recipe on Pinterest (of course), and here’s that original link.  I love to make it in late summer and early fall before my basil plants freeze.  I am also including the salad ingredients, which make for a colorful backdrop, but the dressing is the main thing.  Just make it.  You’ll see what I mean.

Basil Orange Salad Dressing
This delightful green salad dressing has an unbeatable flavor, and is a great thing to make when you're pruning the basil in your garden. I'm including the salad recipe too, but it is good on a wide variety of veggie options.
