You know how you’re not supposed to go to the store when you’re hungry, (to keep you from overspending)? Well I’ve found that some of my best recipe creating is done when I AM really hungry. I get crazy creative because everything in the fridge is fair game and I want to eat it all! I always have all of these ingredients on hand, so making these lettuce wraps was a no-brainer!
Shredded chicken with apples, grapes, celery, almonds, craisins, and onion. It’s like a kicked up version of traditional chicken salad, served in a lettuce wrap! And I love the Greek yogurt dressing. It’s way healthier and tastes amazing! I do like to add a spoonful of mayo just because I love the boost of flavor it gives to this healthy chicken salad recipe. These Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps make the perfect light lunch or dinner. Great for serving at parties too!
