Jerk Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Mango Salsa

This week we are sharing our new jerk chicken lettuce wraps with mango salsa. We thought it would be fun to create a healthy, gluten free, menu item that everyone would be able to enjoy with the upcoming warm weather. These lettuce wraps are not only delicious, but are a healthy alternative as well. They are perfect for an outdoor picnic with your family and friends.

These wraps were a big hit with our clients and vendors at our industry event, so we hope you enjoy!
