Grilled Caesar Salad Wrap for Two Recipe

Makes: 2 servings

Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast (about 8 ounces), trimmed
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 small romaine heart
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 8- to 9-inch spinach wraps, warmed

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Combine lemon juice, oil, mayonnaise, garlic and pepper in a medium bowl.
  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Sprinkle chicken with salt. Cut romaine in half lengthwise, leaving the root end intact. Grill the chicken until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 165°F, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Two minutes before the chicken is done, place the romaine on the rack and grill, turning once or twice, until lightly charred and beginning to wilt, 2 to 3 minutes total.
  4. Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Cut the root ends off the romaine, then chop the leaves. Add the chicken, lettuce and Parmesan to the bowl with the dressing; toss until well combined. Fill each wrap with the salad (about 1 1/2 cups each) and roll closed.

Tips & Notes

  • Oiling a grill rack before you grill foods helps ensure that the food won’t stick. Oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to coat the food with cooking spray.
