Lightened Up Chicken Salad


It is HAWT outside and the last thing I am feeling is a hot and heavy lunch. The heat has me craving light and cool. This recipe delivers! It would be easy enough to multiply the recipe and make a big batch to have on hand for the week. It’s delicious as lettuce wraps but you can also serve it over mixed greens or even with some crackers or in a wrap if you want more carbs. ⁣
