The wraps by themselves pack some heat but the dressing cools things off and adds such a sweet refreshing flavor — it's like a vacation in a wrap.

  • 1 8-ounce package tempeh
  • 1/2 bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 small sweet onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons jerk seasoning
  • 1 bunch butter lettuce

For the Mango Basil Aioli:

  • 1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 cup diced mango
