Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps by Lora Monson

2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
olive oil
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 carrot, grated
1/4 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
4 cup romaine lettuce, thinly sliced
3/4 cup seasoned croutons
1/2 cup Caesar or Ranch Salad dressing
(I use Good Seasons Italian from the packet made with apple cidar vinegar and canola oil)
6 tortillas or pita bread
Stir-fry chicken in garlic and oil until no longer pink in the center. Remove from pan and cool. Cut into strips. Put chicken, onion, pepper, tomato, carrot, cheese, lettuce, croutons, and dressing in a bowl. Toss to coat evenly. Place about 3/4 cups mixture on a warm tortilla or pita bread. Roll up and serve.

Melba's Note: One of the first times I met Lora, she taught in Relief Society (women's organization for the LDS Church). She said her Mom always taught her that reading the Book of Mormon makes you beautiful. I remember thinking to myself, "Lora must read the Book of Mormon a lot!" She's as beautiful inside as she is outside. And a funny side note about her, she got engaged while racing to the hospital with a broken arm.
