Add the ginger, garlic, peppers, cabbage and carrot mix and scallions and stir-fry another 2 minutes. Add plum sauce to glaze the mixture, toss 1 minute, then add basil and wilt leaves.

Love it! Boston Bibb would make a good wrap. The second time making this I doubled the coleslaw mix and used soy sauce in the place of fish sauce (I didn't have fish sauce on hand). Overall, a good, easy recipe.

Dh really liked this recipe. Added more cabbage mix than called for...and some sweet chili sauce to the lettuce as condiment. Yum.

This is such a good recipe! Even better with peanut sauce and if you use uncooked matchstick carrots to top them off! I kid you not my friends and I made and ate these wraps for at least one meal for 4 days in a row!
