Buffalo Wing Turkey Lettuce Wraps

(from kylerhea’s recipe box)

barely adapted from Sweet Treats and More
I used some blue cheese crumbles and a tablespoon of Litehouse Bleu Cheese Vinaigrette just like my SIL, but don’t feel like you have to have the dressing to make these…they are good with just the crumbles too.
