Chicken Caesar Wrap as a Tastyyyy Salad

IMG_7484

Deconstructed Chicken Caesar Wrap — what’s up? I made this late summer around the same time I went to Nantucket with my friends Leah and Steph. For some reason, it got lost in the potential blog post limbo. I saw Leah Saturday night and she was craving a Caesar salad for dinner, and I remembered this post was lost in limbo. This version of a Caesar “salad” is light, fresh and perfectly chopped. I love my salads chopped now after this is how they were prepped in college. This is totally optional, but so much more fun. I also looooooove this dressing I found a few years ago; it’s creamy because of the Greek yogurt, but still tastes just like Caesar dressing. Adding a little naan on the side makes this salad seem like a wrap without actually having the wrap.

Ingredients (serves 2).

  • 4 romaine leaves, thinly chopped
  • 2 c spinach, packed and thinly chopped
  • 2 T shredded parmesan
  • 2 to 3 T Greek Yogurt Caesar Dressing
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1 mini cucumber, sliced
  • 1/2 c matchstick carrots
  • 1 c rotisserie chicken, chopped
  • Black pepper
  • 1 whole wheat naan (like Whole Foods)

Directions.

  1. In a medium bowl, toss romaine, spinach, parmesan and 2 T dressing until dressing is well distributed. Add an additional tablespoon of dressing if needed.
  2. Top with avocado and cucumber slices, shredded carrots and diced chicken. Top with freshly cracked black pepper.
  3. Serve with warmed naan.
  4. Enjoy!
