Mexican Turkey Lettuce Wraps

Monday has rolled around again after a busy weekend. On Saturday we went to a Ramp Fest in the Cuyahoga National Park near our house. If you are a fan of ramps then this would be your type of festival.  They had a wide variety of dishes that included ramps.  Crispy fries with ramp alioli, salads with ramp dressing, sandwiches with ramp sauces including this Pork Sammy with Baby Kale and Ramp Alioli.
