'Wich of the Week: Chicken Caesar Wraps
'Wich of the Week: Chicken Caesar Wraps

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

Chicken Caesar Wraps

From

Ingredients

  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

Directions

  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.

Looks super easy and yummy! For those who are lactose-intolerant, apparently you can add lemon juice, apple cider vinegar or cream of tartar to any unsweetened milk alternative (and let it stand for 10 minutes) to replicate buttermilk. And there's always vegannaise to replace mayo. ;)

femmefatale: The classic recipe for Caesar dressing includes a raw egg and olive oil. Check out this recipe. Hope that helps!

i used to always go to au bon pain and get their chicken ceasar wrap before i became a vegetarian and i loved it - so this is a great idea. it's actually not too bad if you do just the ceasar wrap too since you get the salt/zing from the dressing, the crunch from the lettuce and the texture from the wrap.

I would make these, but I'd probably use tortillas instead of lavash...I don't think I've ever seen it in my grocery store.

I love chicken caesar wraps. But we usually use tortillas. And I'd have to stick with my beloved Ken's dressing! Is lavash bread readily available?
