Guaranteed crowd-pleasers, these wraps are perfect for leftover grilled chicken. The distinctive salty flavor from the fish sauce is balanced by fresh mint and lemon juice. Source: EatingWell Magazine, Summer 2002

Great flavor... except for the mint I'm eating this as I write this review. The dressing is surprisingly delicious not salty but tastes well seasoned and definitely not fishy. The only issue I have with this is the mint. I didn't have the 2/3 cup called for and added about 1.5 tablespoons of chopped fresh mint. It's far too minty for my tastes and I think it detracts from the rest of the salad which is absolutely delicious. Next time I make this I'm only going to add a teaspoon of fresh mint. Otherwise this is definitely going into the summer meal rotation. Pros: easy make-ahead delicious Cons: far too minty Read More
