summery chicken salad wraps

mom and i love cooking in the kitchen together. except for one thing that really bothers me: she never follows the recipe. ever. love you mom ;)

 

but guess what? this time she sucked me in. we experimented! i do like to experiment but i’m also a big fan of stickin’ to the recipe :)

 

we made (really she made and shared the recipe with me ) a chicken salad that is perfect for summer! my favorite things about it are that mom’s chicken is homemade and so juicy, and the mango in it adds such a yummy bright flavor! i also love the avocado dressing that i made to go on top. it’s tangy but still light and really makes the wraps come together.
