Asian Turkey Broccoli Slaw Teriyaki Wraps

This is one of most favorite recipes. I could eat these every week (and often do!). I found this recipe first at Picky Palate, she takes the most amazing pictures! We've played around with the recipe a bit and below is how we like it here. I've noticed that the size of the bag of broccoli slaw differs depending where you shop. Cub has 10 oz. bags and Walmart has 16 oz. bags. I've even seen 12 oz. bags before. Just use what you find. I don't often mention brand names but I do believe that LaChoy teriyaki sauce is key here. I've tried Kikkoman which is cheaper (at Costco) and it's lower in calorie but it's much thinner and doesn't seem to taste as good or coat the broccoli slaw as well. I also use the jarred ginger and garlic for this recipe, it seems to work fine and I do put a lot of garlic in this. I usually wrap these with my tortillas but they are fantastic as lettuce wraps as well.
