This made a very nice filling for my favorite multi-grain wraps. I don't like raisins and used dried cranberries in their place. To make it fast and easy I used rotisserie chicken breast that I had cubed up the day before. This was great texturally; creamy avocado crunchy walnuts chewy dried fruit meaty chicken. This had great flavor as well; savory and a bit sweet at the same time wonderful freshness from the basil and a hint of tartness from the lime juice. What are you waiting for? Go make this now!:) Read More

To me the flavors didn't really seem to go together. It wasn't awful or anything very edible. Just kind of weird. But as we were eating it we both kept making suggestions for how we would change it next time. So I guess it's a good inspiration recipe but I won't be making this again in this way. But hey clearly I am in the minority here so I say give it a shot and see what you think. Read More

My husband and I are doing the Dr. Oz 2 week rapid weight loss plan and it can be hard to find recipes that are allowed. This is perfect! We both enjoyed it minus the raisins and walnuts - just our personal preference. Read More

This is absolutely delicious. I wasn't sure at first I thought that I would miss Mayo... But the avocado is a wonder substitution. Read More

I didn't have enough basil (only about a tablespoon of dried) so I changed it up a bit. I added about 2 tablespoons of cilantro 2 diced scallion 1/2 cup red onion very finely diced half a red bell pepper diced 2 finely chopped celery stalks garlic powder to taste and a teaspoon of grated fresh ginger. I also cooked the diced chicken in a tablespoon of olive oil minced garlic salt and pepper mainly because it doesn't say how to. The changes didn't add to the calories or fat content because they were all vegetables. This is a great recipe. Easy quick and great for lunch leftovers! Definitely a keeper. Read More

Made this for lunch today- my husband and I enjoyed it very much. We subbed the Bibb lettuce wrap style with serving it over a bed of mixed greens with tomato and cucumber. Next time I'm trying this mixture (minus chicken) over a piece of grilled mahi. Careful with the lime juice. I used one med size lime at it had a citrus kick to it however it may be better for most to use 1/2 lime taste and add accordingly. Read More
