Chick Pea and Baby Spinach Caesar Wrap
It’s feeling like summer more and more every day! I don’t know about you, but I find it helpful to have a few easy to prepare “no-cook” recipes for the hottest of days. This recipe features succulent baby spinach and delicious homemade caesar dressing. If you prefer chicken, swap out some or all of the chickpeas with precooked chicken breast. Rich in fibre, protein, and flavour, you will love this fast, easy and inexpensive recipe!!
