Chef Rick Tip
Making lettuce roll-ups can be fun. Try setting out a Roll-up Bar at your next party. Simply place out lettuce, thinly sliced vegetables and various sauces arranged on a platter, along with an assortment of Thin ‘n Trim’s low sodium deli meats. Let your guests create and assemble their own healthy roll-up variations.
