Well, hello, my friends at What’s Cooking with Ruthie!!!

Thanks a million for having me back again this month! I don’t know about you, but these long summer days have had me indulging a little bit too much in grapevine libations and tasty foods, so I have to check it a little bit every now and then or all that hard work at the gym is pretty much for not. Here’s the thing about Summer that we’ve got going for us, though, we have the ripest, most delicious fresh ingredients at every corner!

The Nashville Farmer’s Market is exploding with every locally grown vegetable to be found and my new favorite thing to get at NFM is grass-fed, organic lean meat. With that being said and with the help of a little Bibb lettuce, tomatoes and Tzatziki sauce (lightened up with Greek yogurt, of course), I can enjoy these Greek Lettuce Wraps pretty much guilt-free. The glorious thing about them is that they are incredibly tasty and filling, but are truly on the freshest, lightest side of the food scale spectrum!

With all that being said, let’s get to the point of this post, which is the low in fat, high in taste and flavor Greek Lettuce Wrap.
