Lettuce help you transform dinner with an Asian-inspired dish that’s a lean, mean, flavor-loaded machine. These Thai Quinoa and Red Rice Lettuce Cups with Turkey are sure to become a hand-held favorite, thanks to Tiny Hero® Golden Quinoa and Red Rice, bold Thai green curry, and some extra crunchy Iceberg lettuce. With this kind of texture and spice, you may never go back to salad with a fork.
