Lettuce Wraps with Almond Butter Sauce

This was such a super fast and deelish meal! The sauce is perfect and very similar to a Thai Peanut Sauce. It is nutty, tangy and sweet! YUM! If you keep the veggies cut and ready to go this makes a snack in seconds! The sauce is also perfect to dip crudite in.

    Hi, this looks yummy and I’m definitely going to try that sauce, as I always have almond butter in the house. But I’ve never come across jicama before and suspect we can’t get it in the UK, any suggestions for a substitute?

      THANKS!! The sauce is super easy to whip up with stuff in the house, love that!!
      Jicama is a super crunchy veggie, really yummy! If you have a chance to try it you should! I know I already use cucumber & carrots in the wrap which is super crunchy so you don’t exactly need it. Maybe add some sprouts, juliened courgettes or colored bell peppers. Hope that helps. Let me know how it turns out 🙂 THANKS!! ENJOY!!!
