A chicken salad wrap is a refreshing lunchtime option that is easy to make and perfect to pack for a picnic. But the best part? They can be super healthy!

Just because the old-fashioned diner serves their chicken salad with gobs of mayo on a honking roll doesn’t mean that you need to. So how can you customize it to keep the taste and lose the calories? Easy. Just replace the mayo with non-fat greek yogurt, go easy on the salt, and substitute bread for lettuce. It has healthy fat, protein, vegetables, and fruit. Here is our healthy chicken salad wrap recipe:
