On the Menu: Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps are a classic Vietnamese dish.  I find them fun to eat because the numerous ingredients in the wrap really pack a lot of different flavors into one small bite.  Using lettuce instead of bread keeps it light and fresh.   I use a house made Vietnamese pork sausage with herbs, chilies, fish sauce and lemongrass for the protein.  Along with the protein is boiled rice vermicelli, lime, fried shallots, cilantro, mint and thai basil, all held together by a fresh piece of lettuce.
