Balsamic Chicken Salad

Balsamic Chicken Salad

Roasted chicken, shredded
Red grapes, halved
Toasted pecans or almonds
Balsamic vinegar, just a splash
Lite mayo, just a spoonful
Romaine lettuce leaves

Mix together chicken, grapes, nuts, vinegar, and mayo. Fill lettuce with salad and eat as wraps.

This is an adaptation of two seperate recipes. One involves mandarin oranges and mayo, the other grapes and olive oil. I think that pretty much you could put any of these combinations together and have a fantastic chicken salad. I love the roasted chicken part. PLEASE, be careful about buying store-bought roasted chickens. Many contain barley malt, or wheat, or some form of modified food starch made from gluten. I have been told that the ones at Costco are gluten free. Labels, labels, labels my dear friends, always read the labels.
