Ingredients

Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons hoisin sauce
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced

Wraps:

  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken (or more, to taste)
  • 1 head butter leaf lettuce
  • Spring onions/scallions (green parts) to taste
  • Cucumber chopped, to taste
  • 1 medium carrot julienned 
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Lime wedges for serving

Instructions

  • Prepare the dressing by mixing mayo, rice vinegar, hoisin sauce, and garlic. Set aside.
  • Prepare spring onions, cucumber, and carrot by chopping into desired size pieces. I julienned the carrot.
  • Carefully remove leaves from lettuce one by one, choosing ones that are shaped well for holding the wrap contents.
  • Assemble wraps by adding chicken, spring onions, cucumber, and carrot to each lettuce leaf. Drizzle dressing over them. Add salt & pepper if desired and a squeeze of lime juice. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • If I'm making this for lunch just for me, I halve the recipe.
  • Great for an appetizer or light meal.
  • The number of wraps you make really depends how much you stuff in them.
