    Ilysse's Note:

    This is great if you have a head of lettuce that you have to use right away. Even if you don't, its still a great side dish to any asian meal. Simple to make, with common ingredients, its a keeper for sure. Try different lettuce varieties, I used romane tonight since its what was on hand. I also didn't have sesamee oil tonight so I used walnut oil and it was still a winner. I like to toss in some toasted sesame seeds and if I have them on hand a green onion, chopped, is nice to add with the lettuce. As you can see, this recipe leaves a huge opening for your own additions and variations.

      This was excellent even without the wine - it tastes like meaty spinach in a moo goo gai pan sauce. I bet this would be great with chicken or roasted peanuts.

      Thank you so much. I thought this was absolutely wonderful. We always buy lettuce on sale from the vegetable shops here (3 heads for $2), but I always get frustrated because one goes bad. Now, that doesn't have to happen. Perfect flavors and super easy to make.
