Lettuce Wrap Salad

I was in a lettuce wrap kind of mood tonight, but I also wanted to sit on my couch and watch TV while I ate, so something less messy and drippy than lettuce wraps seemed a better route.  So, I made a veggie medley that normally I would put inside a lettuce wrap and just plated it all together.  Satisfied my craving and kept dipping sauce from dripping down my shirt and all over my couch.

Lettuce Wrap Salad


- 4 Bibb lettuce leaves

- 5 Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced

- 1/4 red onion, sliced

- 1 ear of corn, kernels removed

- 1 fresno chili, sliced

- 5 cherry tomatoes, halved

- 1 scallion, chopped

- 1 T. sesame seeds

- salt

- white pepper

- 1 T. soy sauce

- blended oil

- a few drops of fish sauce

- 1 tsp. ponzu

- 1 tsp. sambal olek

- a few drops of sesame oil


Lay the lettuce leaves on a plate.

Whisk together the soy, fish sauce, ponzu, hot sauce, and sesame oil in a small bowl.  Set aside.

Heat 1 T. of blended oil in a pan.  Add the onion, fresno, and corn.  Season with salt and saute for 3-4 minutes.  Next add in the Brussels sprouts and sautee for 2 more minutes, then finish by adding in the tomatoes and seasoning everything with pepper.  Pour the reserved sauce over the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Spoon the mixture onto the lettuce leaves and garnish with the scallions and sesame seeds.
