#42 Thai Beef Salad Wraps

Ahh this wrap was so good. It tasted so fresh, with the mint, cilantro and basil the tender meat and sauce..yum! It was my third time to try Thai cuisine. I know, I know. Where have I been..haha. I missed out on a lot. Thai food is delicious I was told several times, and I totally agree.  It is very easy to make and we truly were more than satisfied!
