Consider this as an outlet for lettuce without making another salad. The vegetable slaw is a great outlet for root vegetables in raw application as well. These components could easily be converted into a delicious spring roll or even chilled sandwiches.

INGREDIENTS

LETTUCE WRAPS:

A few large heads of lettuce, outer leaves picked and washed.

ROOT VEGETABLE SALAD:

  • 1 winter radish
  • ½ celery root
  • ½ red onion sliced
  • 1 baby carrot
  • Chopped mixed micro herbs and greens
  • Juice of one lime
  • Salt

YOGURT SAUCE:

  • ½ cup yogurt
  • ⅛ cup minced cucumber or pickles
  • Salt

For the Lettuce 

Place the lettuce leaves in a bowl for serving and set aside.

For the Root Vegetable Salad 

Shave all vegetables on a Mandoline and cut into little strips. Add the lime, herbs and salt. Place in a small bowl for serving.

For the yogurt sauce

Combine the yogurt and cucumber or pickles. Transfer to a small bowl for serving.

To Enjoy:

I wash leaves when I get the home delivery box. I wash them, spin in the salad spinner and then store them in a large airtight container lined with paper towel. They stay fresh all week and are ready to eat. It saves time and money.

To build these, place a heavy pinch of the root vegetable slaw into a leaf of lettuce, top with yogurt sauce. Enjoy. Repeat. Enjoy again.

Consider:

Add leftovers to this. Leftover meatballs. Leftover grilled meat(chicken, fish, beef)
