I have all of this beautiful lettuce in my garden this year and I just can’t seem to keep up with it! It's so crisp, fresh and clean - I love it! The taste is so much fresher than lettuce I buy in the store. I'm eating it as soon as I cut it. The great thing about lettuce is that it grows, you cut it to eat, and then it grows right back. I won't have to buy lettuce this summer at all! We’ve been making a lot of lettuce wraps and having tons of salad so that it doesn’t go to waste.
Do you have a garden? What do you grow?
Last week we also had leftover rotisserie chicken so I decided that I’d make a healthy version of chicken salad. Hope you like it!
3oz of leftover rotisserie chicken
2T plain Greek yogurt like Fage 2%
2T chopped dried cranberries
1T chopped walnuts
2tsp honey mustard
Lettuce leaves for wrapping
Salt & pepper, to taste.
Add the yogurt to the chicken mixture and stir thoroughly.
If you have time, let the mix sit overnight or for at least a few hours to “marinate”.
When ready, serve on lettuce leaves and season with salt & pepper – such a light and healthy lunch!
