Korean Lettuce Cups with SunGold Kiwifruit-Cucumber Salsa

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Start to Finish: 20 minutes

  • 1/4 cup gochujang sauce (Korean chili pepper paste)*
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 2 Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped cucumber
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 Bibb lettuce leaves

Lime wedges

In medium microwavable bowl, stir together gochujang sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir in chicken. Cover loosely with waxed paper. Heat on High power 1 to 2 minutes, stirring halfway through heating, until hot.

In small bowl, stir together kiwifruit, cucumber, bell pepper, onion and cilantro.

For each lettuce cup, spoon about 1/4 cup chicken mixture and a scant 1/4 cup salsa onto lettuce leaf. Serve with a lime wedge.

4 servings (2 lettuce cups each)

*Sriracha sauce or barbecue sauce can be substituted for the gochujang sauce.

Recipe tips: 1 pound medium cooked and shelled shrimp can be substituted for the chicken. Reduce gochujang sauce to 3 tablespoons. A serrated peeler works best for peeling kiwifruit.
