If you were reading my recipes last week you would have seen my Curried Chicken Quinoa Salad recipe and the subsequent raving about how much we adored it! It’s one of our new go-to recipes for this summer, fast, easy and delicious.

That very night, while packing lunches I had a brainwave. (this doesn’t happen very often)

Why not just wrap that salad right up into a glorious quinoa wrap and plop it into my son’s lunch?

So I proceeded to do just that.

The salad makes a beautiful wrap and if you use rice tortillas it’s a beautiful gluten free wrap. To comply with school lunch rules, I had to make my son’s lunch version of this wrap without the pecans, but  they are most certainly a shining taste star in this wrap.

There is nothing like a decadent quinoa wrap for lunch and it’s perfect for school lunches. I wrapped it tightly in Saran Wrap to hold it together in my son’s lunch kit and it was a complete lunchtime success!

    I always forget about wraps as well, we always have bread of course, but it takes memory to make sure to pick up tortillas!
