Homemade Chicken Salad wrapped in a basil tomato tortilla with lettuce, sunflower seeds and crumbled blue cheese.

Chicken Salad Wrap

Chicken salad, so perfect for lunch. I made this chicken salad from the leftover chicken I did on the grill the other day. It’s pretty healthy too because I don’t add a lot of mayonnaise to it, if you want to add more go ahead but I prefer to taste all of the tasty ingredients I put in the sandwich instead of mayonnaise. In this wrap I used sunflower seeds and crumbled blue cheese.

One surprise in this might be a few dashes of Tabasco sauce something I learned from a chef I once worked for years ago. If you don’t like blue cheese, feta cheese is good also or put some shredded cheese right into your chicken salad. This is a recipe that you can pick and choose whatever you like best to make your wrap with. Tomatoes would be good in it too, I just didn’t have any today to use.
