Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps with Sesame Ginger Slaw are a healthy, flavorful meal that our entire family loves!

Ever have ‘one of those weeks’?

We survived the first week of school and 1000 forms to fill out. We made it through the first week of practice at two different times with two boys on two different football teams and on two different fields. We made it through another work week and we are working through a vehicle break down (BOO!).

In other words?

This momma is ready for a break! So, we are headed out to a local cabin on the river for two days and I have decided that easy meals are the only meals for me this weekend! And I am 100% putting this easy, no oven required meal on the menu ASAP!

Now, you know how we roll with lettuce (and berries!) in this house, right? No bags or cartons from the grocery store! No more slimy, wilted lettuce or mushy, ruined berries after just a few days. Nope. Pop that produce in Rubbermaid® FreshWorks™ Produce Savers and call it a day! These romaine lettuce leaves are days old and they look just as great as when I bought them.

Now, can we talk about this Sesame Ginger Slaw? It is so SO good! Sounds fancy, but it couldn’t be easier to make when you use a bag of coleslaw mix, some fresh cilantro, that glorious ginger dressing (You know, the kind that is served on the salad in your favorite hibachi restaurant?) and a sprinkle of crunchy, nutty sesame seeds. Stir and serve. Seriously, this is my kind of side!

Fresh and crisp, the Sesame Ginger Slaw is the perfect topping for Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps!

These Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps are so easy to assemble – and I am all for easy. Once you set everything out, you can let your family load up the lettuce leaves and dinner is done!
