  • Heat coconut oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet or sauce pan. When coconut oil is hot add the turkey or chicken and garlic and brown on all sides, cooking until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  • While poultry is cooking, in a small bowl, whisk the salt, tamari or coconut aminos, honey and vinegar. Pour over the meat and cook 1 minute. Remove from the heat and set aside and let cool for a few minutes.
  • Let the kids assemble their lettuce wraps by filling the cabbage leaves with turkey, peppers, carrots, green onions, basil and mint. Top with a spoonful of the Peanut-y Dressing and a sprinkle of cashews. Enjoy!
