Chicken Cranberry Apple Almond Salad Wraps

I am a big believer in packing lunches for work. Not only does packing lunches prevent you from spending unnecessary money, but it also allows you to eat a healthier lunch. I always enjoy exploring new packed lunch ideas. Chicken salad recipes often sound appalling to me because of the key ingredient that is in most chicken salads mayo. I have never been a fan of mayo, so I created this recipe using an alternative-Greek yogurt. Although most chicken salads are served on bread I decided to use a wrap. This is a light lunch that really works anytime of the year.

Ingredients

 

Chicken Cranberry Apple Almond Salad Wraps

1 roasted chicken (shredded)

1 gala apple

1/2 C celery

1/8 C dried cranberries

3 T sliced almonds

1 C fat free plain Greek yogurt

2 T Dijon mustard

1 T rosemary

6 large wraps (I used Whole Grain White SoftWraps)

Dice the apple, celery, and dried cranberries. Mix together with the chicken, almonds, oregano, and a dash of S&P.

Add the Greek yogurt sauce to the chicken and fruit. Mix until combined. Add about 3 heaping tablespoons to each wrap.

Roll shut, I used a toothpick to ensure the wrap would stay closed.

I went ahead and created all the wraps and packed in tupperware for lunches so we could easily grab them each morning  for our lunch. I love being able to pack all the lunches for a week at once, makes the week a little smoother when you can check that off your list ahead of time.

Do you usually pack or go out for lunch?

I almost always pack.

Are you a wrap or sandwich person?

I like both, but enjoy wraps a tad more.

  1. Those look amazingly good! Thanks for the recipe! I usually eat at home between clients, and love stuff like those wraps. If I’m going to be out during lunch, I take something to tide me over until I can get home to eat.

  2. I really enjoy! They are great since you can make them ahead of time and have them ready in no time.
