1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger, peeled

1 teaspoon finely grated super fresh lemongrass

1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, divided

6 drops toasted sesame oil, divided

1 cup shredded cabbage

1 large carrot, finely grated

½ cup orange juice

STEP 1: Heat grill to medium-high heat.

Grill for five to six minutes on each side or until well-done, 165ºF as measured by a meat thermometer.

STEP 3: Combine cabbage and carrots in a medium bowl. Add orange juice, remaining soy sauce and three drops toasted sesame oil. Mix well.

STEP 4: Place turkey patty into each lettuce leaf and mound cabbage and carrot mixture on top. Garnish with cilantro and toasted sesame seeds, if desired.
