When Coulter was less than a year old I had my first taste of PF Chang’s lettuce wraps and let me tell you I was hooked! I don’t even think I had a bite of my meal that we had ordered because I stuffed myself on the appetizer of lettuce wraps we had ordered.
The fact that I live 200+ miles from a PF Changs which means I had to figure out a way to make these amazing lettuce wraps from home. I think I have succeeded pretty good with these Copy Cat PF Changs Lettuce Wraps. They may not be spot on but close enough for this rural area girl to be in lettuce wrap heaven! Lettuce wraps are good on their own but there is just something about that dipping sauce that PF Changs lettuce wraps come with. It puts this appetizer or dinner over the top!
