Also, from time to time I would add eggs and sometimes I would skip including them.

The best part of this kind of salad is that you can use any chicken breast, although I would totally recommend rotisserie chicken.

Most of the time we do have leftovers after getting a large rotisserie chicken from the store and this is what we make.

It is just such a delicious and easy way to make lunch or even dinner.

My husband and I devoured this tray of lettuce wraps. I did not even miss bread or additional carbs.

That being said, I will probably slice some tomatoes and avocado the next time I serve these.

Chicken and Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps

This salad reminds me greatly of my Russian Olivier Salad, except that I did not add smoked ham and boiled potatoes.

Oh, I can’t even tell you how much I love that salad that’s why I created this one. Something similar, but still somewhat different.

Please do check out my delicious and extremely easy Russian Olivier Salad because I have a feeling that you guys will love it.

Easy and tasty lunch or fun appetizers. Sometimes you really do not need a whole lot to create an amazing meal. Just look at these tasty Chicken and Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps. They look fire and taste even better.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2-2 cup pull apart rotisserie chicken breast
  • 4 large boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted (optional)
  • 2 kosher pickles, diced
  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 1 Butterhead lettuce

Instructions

  1. Use any leftover chicken breast such as oven-roasted chicken or even boiled, however, my recommendation is rotisserie. Take the skin off and pull off chicken breast meat off. Shred and pull apart with two forks or with your hands. Place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Boil eggs, 6 minutes in the boiling water. Submerge eggs in cold water, break them a bit and leave for 5 minutes before peeling. Peel eggs and chop into small pieces. Add eggs to the mixing bowl.
  3. Add diced pickles, lemon juice, a dash of salt and pepper, then mix it by tossing it.
  4. Now, add mayo and mustard and mix it to coat everything very well. Keep salad in the fridge before serving.
  5. Wash and separate butter lettuce or any lettuce on hand and add about 2 tablespoons of the salad in the middle of the lettuce cup.
  6. I like garnishing it with a dash of black pepper and sweet paprika or red hot chili pepper flakes. This really depending on your personal preference.
  7. Enjoy!

Notes

The salad could be refrigerated and in airt tight container for up to 3 days. That is for the best taste.

If you do not like peas, please omit or add corn or carrots.

I feel like everyone loves quick, easy and fun pasta recipes. So this fall-inspired Mediterranean Pasta Salad falls right into quick, and easy dishes.

We love this delicious DaVinci Pasta, you can really taste the quality with each bite you take.

I have decided to share my recent favorite pasta salad; Mediterranean Pasta Salad.

The combination of flavors just works so well together. Actually, I made this with two types of pasta just to show you that it looks amazing whatever shape you use.

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

It is beautiful with Ditalini and Bowties, so use whatever DaVinci® Pasta you can find.

Although I would totally use spaghetti, with perhaps sauce such as Chicken Alfredo or a simple Bolognese. I just made my mouth to water.

My husband, Nebs, who is not a salad fan at all, said that he can eat this particular pasta dish at least a couple of times a week. I am pretty happy when I hear praise like that.

It is lighter, meatless and filling at the same time. We have three teen kids still at home so pasta is a staple of my house.

There are so many dishes that we can make using pasta. You know how they say: “Pastabilities are endless.”

Mediterranean Pasta Salad

It leaves a family fully satisfied, no matter what you make. With that being said, the beauty of pasta salad is that you can use whatever you wish to use, or whatever is in season.

This is really one fantastic recipe for Labor Day, or even make it over Thanksgiving. Perhaps you can use roasted sweet potatoes and some celery or broccoli for that extra crunch.

I have been using DaVinci pasta for quite some time. It has a really fantastic taste, and on top of it, my family loves it too, which is always a huge plus.
