Mediterranean Chicken Salad Wraps

I can’t say chicken salad is something that makes a regular appearance around here. But when it does, it never takes on the traditional flavor or appearance. That’s  more because I’m usually cleaning out the crisper when I make it.

But the other day, I decided to switch things up and give my stand-by chicken salad a purposeful mediterranean profile with olives, capers and a strong lemon flavor along with a few other add-ins. And since I swapped out the usual calorie-laden mayonnaise binder for some olive oil and Greek yogurt, go ahead and make a few fat wraps and eat up (if your a lemon fan like me, add an extra wedge to squeeze on top)!

Butter Leaf Lettuce | Bakers Royale

One small tip before you grab the recipe—you can pretty much use anything for the wrap portion, but I like butter leaf lettuce because it’s sweeter and it’s pliable enough to roll without cracking. If you want to make this for a packed lunch, give it one last wrap with some rice paper to hold it all together.
