Easy Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Every now and then I still manage to surprise myself with my creativity! These Thai inspired lettuce wraps definitely hit the mark. I will say not every creation will be a home run, but when it is, oh the victory is sweet. 

I already had ground turkey, and while in the store came across the broccoli slaw and us a meal was inspired. I decided to try out a coconut peanut butter sauce with the spice of ginger and garlic. Let me just say I could’ve eaten that on just about anything! 

This also made for great tacos and of course a traditional salad where I tossed in other veggies like tomatoes and cucumbers. For other meal ideas, I’d consider a turkey burger with dressed slaw.
