You know what I love about spring? Of course I love how the warmer weather lets us get outside more, when the grass turns green, and how the flowers bloom. I love all of those things.
But I also love how our food lightens up with the weather. Temperatures start rising and I automatically start craving fresher, lighter foods.
Hello, chicken strawberry salad lettuce wraps. And you thought Asian flavors had the monopoly on lettuce wraps. Not so, my friends, not so.
Strawberries aren’t quite in season here, but soon enough I’ll be getting them in my CSA box and going strawberry picking. With only 7 simple ingredients, I know I’ll be eating these chicken strawberry lettuce wraps all spring and summer long. You should, too!
