Fruity Chicken Salad Wraps $4.94

These are really simple chicken salad wrappers that are a bit messy, but really quite healthy. We lighten the dressing a lot, and add a bunch of fruit to up the sweetness naturally. Also, there is walnuts in them, so that combined with the ton of chicken mades for a super healthy quick dinner.

16 ounces chicken (cooked using your chosen method) $2.26
1/4 cup green grapes .20
1/4 cup red grapes .15
1/2 apple or 1/4 cup pineapple tidbits.49
2 tbsp red onion .20
2 tbsp finely chopped celery .10
1/4 cup walnuts .70

mmm... the sauce
1/4 cup plain yogurt .29
1/4 cup mayonnaise of choice (we prefer Kraft with Olive Oil).15
1 tbsp dijon mustard .15
1 tbsp lemon juice .20
1 tsp black pepper .05

six to twelve inner leaves of romaine lettuce

mix the sauce, then coat the other ingredients in it - allow to flavor for as long as possible, then spoon onto six tortillas which are lined with romaine lettuce. Cut diagonally into two pieces, and serve with chips or veggies or just as is. These are awesome without the carbs of those wraps. If you don't get the high fiber, low carb wraps, the flour tortillas are actually not that great for you - they pack a ton of calories unnecessarily. Those looking for the healthy option can get it really easily by eating in the leaf of romaine without the tortilla.
