Rainforest Cafe Lettuce Wraps and Thai Chicken Salad

Published on October 26, 2011

If you ever had Rainforest Cafe’s wonderful appetizer of lettuce wraps, it was no doubt as memorable as it was to me. It was one of those dishes you had to come home and try to figure out how to make (I was writing down all the ingredients in my head as I was eating it so when I got home I could get it down on paper. It didn’t take long to come up with this copy of their famous dish, which unfortunately (and mysteriously) has been discontinued being served at their restaurants. It may have been too labor intensive. There is a lot going on especially getting the lettuce leaves separated without tearing them.

It’s a beautiful dish for making company feel special.
