These light bites are great as both a starter and as a side dish. The water chestnuts are a key ingredient because they add a great crunchy texture. To make the lettuce cups, carefully peel away a few leaves. You can neaten up the cups by trimming them with scissors for an extra polished look. Serve and enjoy!
