Possibly the only thing easier to make than a sandwich is a salad. So when I wanted an easy sandwich to make en masse for a recent party, I decided to toss up a Caesar salad and wrap up the results in Middle Eastern lavash bread. I figured that pretty much everyone loves Caesar salad, and the wrap-style 'wich made for fun finger food.

Since the sandwiches would be sitting out on a tray, I didn't want to make a traditional Caesar dressing with raw eggs. So I modified a healthier recipe that uses buttermilk and light mayo. It was incredibly easy, and the salad had a great kick to it, unlike some other healthy (and bland) Caesar salads I've tried. To get the recipe and for more photos,

Chicken Caesar Wraps



  1. One dozen lavash wraps
  2. 1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  3. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  4. 1 garlic clove, pressed through a garlic press
  5. 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  6. coarse salt and ground pepper
  7. 6 to 8 ounces precooked grilled chicken breast strips
  8. 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  9. 2 medium heads (1 1/2 pounds total) romaine lettuce, cut into pieces


  1. In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, lemon juice, garlic, and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together mayonnaise and buttermilk mixture. Add romaine and chicken; toss to combine.
  3. Place the lavash wraps, two at a time, on a plate and cover with a wet paper towel. Microwave for 30 seconds to soften the lavash so it doesn't tear.
  4. As each lavash wrap comes out of the microwave, place about a 1/2 cup of salad mixture in the center of the wrap. Fold in the ends and roll up like a burrito.
  5. Slice the rolled wrap into three equal pieces. Secure each piece with a toothpick and serve on a platter.
