Remember my love for farmers’ markets?

Everything on this platter (except the seafood, of course) is fresh from the market, including this amazing head of radicchio

The radicchio at my local grocery store is small and compact, not leafy with amazingly deep colors. I like this variety much better. It’s not nearly as bitter.

After a quick swish in the sink, I realized that my farmers’ market bargain would make the perfect lettuce wrap. The question was what to put in my colorful wrap.

You would be wrong if you assumed that you could buy Dr. Gourmet’s amazing sauce at the grocery store. Dr. Gourmet has a website that offers weight loss options and very tasty recipes, including this easy Thai peanut sauce recipe.

Here’s the proof!

Mr. Mike is eating a lettuce wrap and enjoying every bite. It’s true that he looks confused as to how to eat his wrap, but after three of them he got the hang of it, then asked for a fourth.

This is a fantastic recipe, but naturally I had to add a few tweaks of my own with a dash of chili garlic sauce and a splash of fish sauce. After all, I’m a cook, right?

You can find this sauce recipe at Dr. Gourmet, who is kind enough to provide nutrition information.

If you want ideas for your wraps, I took advantage of the season’s fresh basil, cucumber and green onion to go along with tender chunks of baked cod.

Thanks Dr. Gourmet!

    I love those farmer’s market finds. I get my weekly CSA so that’s already like Christmas every week but one of my fav things is to just wander around my local market (which is not one of my husbands favs but oh well). Great match up between the slightly bitter raddicchio and slightly sweet peanut sauce (and addition of fish sauce for depth :P)
