Lettuce Wraps from the Garden

The lettuce in my Square Foot Garden is abundant.  I have romaine, red leaf, bibb, and salanova (my first try of this variety a friend recommended  from Johnys seeds).  I decided to  prepare lettuce wraps for dinner last Sunday night  and fed the whole family. I simply found a "Lettuce Wraps"seasoning packet at my local grocery store  which had the recipe.  I finely chopped chicken and water chestnuts then marinaded the mixture in the seasoning with some soy sauce and little cane sugar.  The flavor was similar to a recipe I use often for teriyaki.  I use 1/2 c olive oil, 1/2 c water, 3 T raw cane sugar, 1t finely shredded fresh ginger, 2 garlic clove finely chopped, 1 C soy sauce.  The wraps were a hit with the fam and even leaf lettuces are crisp when cut fresh from the garden.
