I made these chicken salad wraps for dinner tonight and WOWed my family. I found the original recipe on 30 Days, 30 Ways, 30 Rewards and like I frequently do with recipes, I modified it to make it my own (specifically, I added fresh spinach to my wraps because it sounded so good with the pesto. I also mixed the bacon in with the chicken and pesto because I thought that the flavors would marinate together well).

The result? Pure yumminess!
