Chicken Strawberry Salad Wrap

Only a few days left and my kiddos go back to school. Seriously, where did the summer go? My daughter will be entering middle school and my li’l guy will be starting kindergarten. Both are very excited to start, I on the other hand am in denial that my babies are growing up.

They have their new school uniforms, bag packs, water bottles, lunch boxes, and as always my daughter has a menu list of recipes she’d like for me to pack for lunch. She cuts out magazine photos and makes a menu list for me every year (if only I can be that organized).

I have to admit that even though I’m always developing new recipes I still find myself in a lunch packing rut. I’m guilty of packing traditional sandwiches, tortas, pitas, quesadillas, burritos, pastas, salads, and soups. My kiddos never complain, but I’m on a mission this year to plan ahead, pack the night before, and try new creative recipes such as these colorful wraps.

As an ambassador for California Strawberries I thought it would be fun to incorporate strawberries into the main dish. This recipe is a perfect way to use leftover roasted chicken to whip up this chicken salad studded with creamy avocado, sweet strawberries, and crunchy almonds. Wrap it up in a soft spinach tortilla and it’s a healthy lunchbox-friendly meal.
