Summer meals should pretty much always be fast, fresh, and easy to make in my way of thinking. Of course that doesn’t mean they should have any less flavor though. I always think of some of the world’s greatest cuisines based around fresh ingredients, especially anything in the Mediterranean.

Last summer I posted a recipe for Italian Sub Lettuce Wraps with Pepperoncini Aioli, and I’ve been getting requests for more lettuce wraps ever since! So today I thought I’d share my other favorite we came up with last summer – BLAT Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Ranch Mayo.
