      FANTASTIC and FUN! I made this as directed but made the turkey mix into small patties and broiled them in my cast iron skillet. I cut my carrots into ribbons with my peeler and added some cilantro to the plate. I used short-grain brown rice cooked with dehydrated ginger and fresh minced garlic. We found this a bit difficult to roll in the lettuce leaves so ended up tearing up the lettuce and making salads. The dressing is wonderful! Freddy Cat says thanks for the turkey! Made for the Please Review tag game.

      This was so different for us and I love how healthy it is. I thought it was delicious and so did my 13 yr. DS. We both give it five-stars. Dad said three and my DD of 15 yrs. said 3-4 and my youngest daughter, who's pretty picky about veggies, gives it a 4. The benefits of this recipe are: its inexpensive, healthy, tastey and quick. I would recommend preparing the dipping sauce way ahead to give the flavors time to meld. I also added extra sugar, ginger and garlic. It was really good. Thanks!
