Directions

Step 1
Warm oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Step 2
Add ground, garlic, salt, oregano, and black pepper and cook until internal temperature reaches 165°F, breaking it up with a spatula as it cooks, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
Step 3
In a medium mixing bowl, add cooked ground and toss with tomatoes and cucumber.
Step 4
Cut the base of the lettuce head and carefully peel the leaves away so they stay as intact as possible. Place leaves on a platter.

Top evenly with tomatoes and cucumber. Garnish with mint and toasted pine nuts. Serve immediately.
