Chicken Lettuce Wraps with Balsamic Cucumber Salad

Posted byLori Posted onJuly 19, 2011 Comments13

Fresh and fantastic, this recipe hosts tons of flavor with numerous nutrients. The chicken wrap itself is optional. The Balsamic Cucumber Salad, however, is not.

Being that this dish is gluten free, dairy free, Paleo approved, and low, low, low in fat, there’s no reason not to make this and enjoy as much as you’d like. I did… of course

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

  • Shredded chicken (baked chicken at 375 degrees, wrapped in tin foil, for 45 minutes)
  • Large leaves for wrapping, kale, butter lettuce, romaine, or cabbage leaves, or tortillas
  • Tomatoes, diced
  • Taco sauce (homemade recipe coming soon!)
  • Pickled veggies (jalapenos and okra!)
  • Balsamic Cucumber Salad (recipe above)

Spread chicken across your wrap. Layer with tomatoes, taco sauce, pickled veggies, and lots of Balsamic Cucumber Salad.

No matter what you layer on top of the wrap, make sure the Balsamic Cucumber Salad is among the players. You definitely won’t be sorry.
