Alan and I have an annual high tea with two other couples to break up our winter, and because one of the gals is gluten free, were always trying to find a few alternatives to the traditional tea sandwiches. Cindi got this recipe for lettuce wraps from her mother, who says she got it 40 years ago from a missionary in Taiwan. We all loved it, and I think it might be a bit lower in calories (for those of us who are always counting . . . or thinking we should :) )! If you try it, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I think it would also be great on a hot summer day when you want something light and cold for lunch.
P.S.Cindi served hers with a little garnish of pea shoots from their farm share, but Im sure they would be excellent just as written up above, or with chopped chives or green onions.
But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
