 California Chicken Avocado Citrus Salad Wrap

Pick up a rotisserie chicken and this chicken salad inspired wrap is a snap to make. All the elements of a fresh, crisp salad rolled up into a wrap…no fork required.

Ingredients

Serves: 4
    Dressing (Yield 2/3 cup – approx.)
1/4  cup  lime juice
1/4  cup  Extra virgin olive oil
Tbsp.  red onion, minced
tsp.  Dijon mustard
Tbsp.  honey
tsp.  cumin
  As needed  Salt to taste
    Wrap
cups  rotisserie chicken, meat removed from the bone and sliced (using primarily the breast meat)
  large orange, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
cup  cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4  cup  chopped, fresh cilantro
cups  thickly chopped romaine lettuce
  ripe, Fresh California Avocado, seeded, peeled and sliced
  burrito-sized whole wheat low-sodium tortillas

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the dressing ingredients and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, orange, tomatoes, cilantro and lettuce. Toss with the dressing.
  3. To assemble the wrap, first place several avocado slices on the middle of the tortilla. Then top with approximately 1 ½ cups of the salad mixture. To roll, tuck in the sides of the tortilla first and roll up from the bottom keeping the sides tucked in place. Repeat for remaining wraps. Cut wraps in half and serve.

Serving Suggestion: Pair with fresh fruit and sliced vegetables.

* Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
