⅛ teaspoon salt
dash of pepper 
1 Tablespoon lemon juice

  • Try this as a wrap in a whole wheat tortilla.
  • Try adding chopped nuts, such as walnuts, pecans or hazelnuts.


This is light and fresh! I had it over a bit of brown rice and will try it as a lettuce wrap next. I added a handful of chopped walnuts for texture and a dash of curry for a flavor twist.

This recipe is delicious! The pears and raisins offer a subtle sweetness, wihle the celery and onions add a nice crunch. I wrapped it up in a whole wheat tortilla with some lettuce and it made the perfect lunch.

We have had this one with a few variations: tuna in the place of chicken, canned chicken instead of fresh, and an apple instead of a pear. All of them were great!
