Dill Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

I feel like fresh dill is sometimes overlooked at the grocery store, but it adds incredible flavor to marinades and sauces. I have made a variety of chicken salads and this one is definitely now one of my favorites! You can serve this chicken salad on bread or with crackers, but I like serving it on butter lettuce leaves because they add freshness, crunch and beautiful color to your plate. 

Serve these for lunch, dinner or as a healthy appetizer. 



1. Combine the dressing ingredients in a large bowl.


2. Add chicken, grapes, almonds, celery, green onion, raisins and sunflower seeds and stir to combine.


3. Place lettuce leaves onto serving plates and scoop chicken salad onto the middle of each leaf. Garnish with additional sliced almonds, if desired.
