Chicken Caesar Wrap

Chicken Caesar Wrap Recipe
Everyone loves a classic Chicken Caesar Salad. This crunchy salad was invented by Italian immigrant Caesar Cardini, who served it in his restaurants in the early years of the 20th century, and saw that salad’s popularity spread across the nation. His mix of romaine lettuce, olive oil, parmesan, garlic, and croutons is an expert use of traditional Italian ingredients that results in a beautifully savory salad that’s also very nutritious when prepared with the right ingredients in the right amounts. We’ve concocted our own skinny Caesar salad that is perfect in a wrap for a quick and tasty lunch!

We use chicken breast in our Caesar, the leanest part of the chicken and a terrific source of lean protein. We’ve grilled the chicken breasts to cut down on excess fat and calories, and to give the salad a smoky taste. Lettuce is a leafy green that imparts vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, and we’ve tossed ours in a healthy dressing that includes flavorful lemon juice and protein-rich, low-fat Greek yogurt, giving the salad a creaminess and a zest without adding extra calories. And since no Caesar salad would be complete without croutons, we’ve made sure that ours are made with whole wheat, providing you with a fiber-rich, complex carbohydrate.

Our wraps are made from whole wheat as well, retaining this lunch’s health quotient. Simply grill your chicken and mix your sauce, and add the salad to your wraps, rolling them up and slicing them down the middle for a healthy, light lunch for one. Or, make a batch of these crowd-pleasers for friends and family!

    This recipe looks delicious and I cannot wait to try it but whilst reading through there is no mayonnaise mentioned in the ingredients section but is in the directions. I was wondering if mayonnaise is part of the sauce and if so how much should be used?
