Red Bell Pepper Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps (Low Carb & Gluten Free) I love the ease of salads. Just throw everything together and it is ready to serve.

Red Bell Pepper Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

You can pretty much add anything to a salad and it still tastes good. Take this salad for example. I just opened the fridge and looked around for what fresh ingredients we had on hand and built on that. Most people have a basic chicken salad recipe that they always use, but I like to change it up every time I make it.

You could, of course, serve this on bread, with crackers, or just eat it by itself. I happened to be making this low-carb so I went with the lettuce wraps as a quick lunch for my dad. It is a pretty idiot proof recipe and it takes about 10 minutes. Perfect for hot summer days and picnics. Red Bell Pepper Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps5

    We use dried cranberries, finely diced pickles and crushed walnuts (spiced) and the “what’s in the fridge” approach as well.
