This chicken salad is light and makes for a perfectly filling and refreshing lunch or dinner that won’t weigh you down.
I tried both a bread version and lettuce version and liked them equally the same, so if you are on a low carb diet I know you’ll love it as lettuce wrapped chicken salad. Try it soon because it’s likely going to become a fall favorite for you too!
