Healthy Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

easy chicken salad lettuce wraps

I made these yummy, easy chicken salad lettuce wraps last week when my friend Myra and her family came for a visit, and then turned around and made a second batch for  a Bible study carry in. It was just too good not to share!

I love a chunky and crunchy chicken salad, don’t you? This one is bursting with flavor with cashews, craisins, grapes, and celery – YUMS!

I love serving this on romaine lettuce boats – it’s healthier and it makes for a beautiful dish! This recipe is great for showers, teas, or luncheons!

Here’s the scoop on how to make these delicious and healthy Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps:

    Yum — I think I’ll give this a try! I like anything that goes in the slow cooker, so something like hot crab dip, artichoke dip, etc. would be my favorite appetizer/luncheony food to serve!

    Do your boys actually eat this? My kids wouldn’t…

    1. QuatroMama says:

      I didn’t give them any because I hoarded it for myself and the “grownups”. Some of them would have probably ate it, since it had so many goodies in it, but I’m sure at least Henry would have fought it! =)
