Chicken Salad Wrap With Apple & Bacon: Wrap It Up Wednesday

Chicken Salad Wrap With Apple & Bacon: Wrap It Up Wednesday

Life is simply better with bacon.

I had planned on sharing a chicken salad recipe with you today for Wrap-It-Up-Wednesday but I decided it wasn’t really all that exciting. Why share a recipe that I don’t absolutely LOVE.

Then it hit me. BACON = LOVE

So I reconfigured my lil recipe, wrapped it up and snarfed ‘er down! It took all the will power I had not to go back for seconds!

Before you scroll down to the recipe below, check out these pics from our garden.

Sleeping Beauties (aka: Daylilies)

I woke up early Saturday morning and was able to sneak out of the house while my boys were still in bed. Mind you I have to be really early to beat my husband out of bed!

We have so many daylilies right now! They surround our house, the garden, our roads… they are EVERYWHERE!

I love how they “sleep” once the sun goes down at night and then bloom again during the day.

It was a mighty pretty sight at sunrise! Just me and a few rabbits (I caught them picking through the strawberry patch!)

Let’s play I spy…

And finally around noon the daylilies are back in full bloom! So neat!

Okay so this wrap may have a few more calories than the other ones I’ve posted this month. But it still has some healthy highlights!

Grapes, apples, whole wheat wrap with flax seed, lettuce, chicken, greek yogurt… I feel that as long as the healthy ingredients outweigh the bad, I’m on the right track. 😉
