Hey curvy curlies, I hope you're well and enjoying the summer. I am in Southern California and it is lovely! Beautiful summer days and nights!
I don't know about you, but when it's warm out, I love the idea of simple, light fare for lunch and dinner. I recently put a spin on chicken salad by adding fresh dill, carrots and turmeric. Yumm! I hope you enjoy it.
2 chicken breast halves, roasted and shredded
1/2 cup carrots, celery, onions diced *Trader Joes sells a prepackaged container of mirepoix - perfect for eliminating the dicing step. Also, ready to use shredded carrots work great for this.
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
3 to 4 tablespoons of lite mayo with olive oil (nonfat plain Greek yogurt is a good substitute)
1 teaspoon tumeric
Salt and pepper to taste
1 medium peeled and sliced cucumber
1 medium tomato sliced (or sliced cherry tomatoes)
1 package lavish bread
In a bowl, with a big mixing spoon, combine the shredded chicken, carrots, celery, and onions. Add in mayo or Greek yogurt, dill and turmeric and salt and pepper to taste. Spread chicken salad on a slice of lavish bread. Top with sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. Roll from one end to the other in a tight wrap. Slice in half on the diagonal or as desired.
