I love to make this ahead of time and serve it after bike riding with the boys, power walking with a friend or a fun game of tennis with a fierce competitor. It’s a great treat to have on hand when the kids get home from school or when my girlfriends stop by for a little get together.
1 head of lettuce / whole romaine good for wraps
1 Tbsp light or low fat mayo
1/4 fat-free sour cream
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
3 cups cooked, cut-up chicken (white meat)
1/2 cup celery, cut-up
2 green onions, cut-up
1/2 cup unsalted cashew pieces

Chicken is a low fat and delicious meat that satisfies the appetite; it’s low in calories and a great source of protein. Cashews are also high in protein and a healthy mainstay to enjoy as a snack or a topping for meats, vegetables, yogurts, salads, oatmeal or pasta. Lettuce leaves round out this salad and add fiber and all kinds of nutrients. A good source of beta carotene, folate, manganese, iron and Vitamins C, K, and A.
