Chicken Salad Wrap

Chicken Salad Wrap recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Tangy chicken salad, wrapped inside a homemade tortilla stuffed with lettuce. With fruit on the side, this was a delicious and simple lunch for an absurdly warm summer day. I initially wanted to make a Cashew Chicken Salad. However, I was fresh out of grapes and didn't have cashews in the house. So, I worked with what I did have and I'm happy with the result.

Ingredients listed are for one wrap:

 
Tortilla (homemade or store-bought)
Assorted lettuce greens, I used a spring mix
1/2 cup cooked chicken, diced, I used white and dark meat
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sour cream
squeeze of a fresh lemon, according to taste
pinch of salt and a dash of pepper, according to taste

In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken and toss gently to coat. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.

Spread the lettuce inside the tortilla and fill with chicken salad. Serve the wrap along with the freshest peaches and cherries of the season for the perfect meal. Enjoy!
