Ingredients

Thai Salad

  • 3 cups diced cooked chicken (leftover cooked chicken breasts or rotisserie work great!)
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced into 1/2 in cubes
  • 1 medium mango, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1/2-in cubes
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 medium jalapeno, finely minced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts

Peanut Dressing

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 butter lettuce leaves

Instructions

Thai Salad

  • In a large bowl, combine all salad ingredients, tossing until combined. Set aside for a moment or refrigerate until ready to use.

Peanut Dressing

  • In a small bowl, whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, cayenne, and ginger until smooth. Gradually whisk in sesame oil until dressing is drizzling consistency. (if dressing is too thick, whisk in 1-2 tablespoons water until drizzling consistency is reached) Season dressing with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Reserve 1/4 cup peanut dressing for drizzling. Toss remaining peanut dressing with chicken salad until salad is evenly coated.
  • When ready to serve, fill lettuce leaves with chicken salad and drizzle each wrap with reserved peanut dressing. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

NOTE: If you plan to make these wraps ahead of time, I would recommend storing the dressing and the salad separately. When ready to serve, toss the dressing into the salad and fill lettuce wraps.
