Fresh Chicken Avocado Wraps

It is outdoor farmers market season! Woo hoo! We headed to the local farmers market this morning to check it out. There were the usual crafters, soap makers and face painters. Today there was a bee company selling local raw honey with a glass hive for people to see inside of. The kids really liked that. But the thing that I most love about farmers markets is table after table filled with fresh, local, organic, hand picked produce! Aaaaaah!

Today we picked out some cherries, a summer squash and a large bunch of rainbow chard.

Matt had to work today so the kids and I were on our own for lunch. I got a great idea looking at the large leaves on the rainbow chard; wraps!


1 1/2 cups of shredded chicken
1 medium sized avocado
1/2 Tablespoon diced onion
1 clove minced garlic
1 Tablespoon organic mayonnaise
Sea salt to taste
Rainbow chard leaves (or other dark greens of choice,  Matt prefers Romaine lettuce for his)

Wash the chard and pat dry. Mix all the other ingredients in a mixing bowl using a fork to blend and mash the avocado. Cut the leaves off the chard stalk. My leaves were so large that I ended up quarting the leaves to make them more manageable as wraps. Spread the avocado mixture onto one side of the leaf. Roll it up and secure (if needed) with a toothpick.

Serve fresh and enjoy! We ate ours with the cherries we picked too.

Recipe yields 6 large wraps.
