There are many things I love about summer.  To name just a few...opening the windows, fresh air, iced sun tea, strawberries, dinners on the patio, farmer's markets, baseball games, fresh garden produce, BLT's, lounging by the pool, reading a good book outside on the porch, barbecues, vacations and so much more.

I really could keep going on forever.

Summer is simple.  It's a time for us to relax a bit, get outside and stay up just a little bit later.  With that comes simplier meals.  Lunches and dinners that are easy to throw together on the go.  Ones that don't require too much fuss and are full of fresh ingredients.

I recently joined the Stonyfield yogurt Clean Plate Club.  Each quarter I'll be sharing a fun new recipe using the delicious Stonyfield yogurt and another product of their choice.

This month I was happy to pick up some Taylor Farms Organic Sweet Baby Lettuce.  Taylor Farms is a family owned operation out of Salinas, California.  They offer a wide variety of salad kits, vegetables, snack trays and more.  Found at Kroger, Meijer and Target {hello, favorite store!}, their blends are fresh and delicious.

And did I mention a perfect pairing for these Honey Dijon Crunchy Chicken Wraps I made?

While at Target I also picked up a container of Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk Yogurt. Yogurt isn't just to eat topped with granola!

Whole, creamy plain yogurts are also great for making dressings, sauces and marinades. Because, hello...you can't have salad without dressing!  A plain salad in my opinion is just boring.  I whisked together an easy dressing of yogurt, spicy brown mustard, red wine vinegar, honey and seasonings.  

You guys, I could have just drank the stuff and been satisified.  It is THAT good!

I'm not one to daintly drizzle a tablespoon of dressing over my food.  I like flavor.  And moisture, if I'm being honest, a dry, tasteless dinner is almost unedible to me.

So I tossed the Taylor Farms Sweet Baby Lettuce blend with the homemade dressing and then drizzled more on top of a crunchy chicken finger.

Yes, I said crunchy chicken finger.  And did I mention a sprinkling of crisp sliced almonds? This wrap is full of flavor and texture.  Roll it all up and it is the perfect summer lunch or light dinner.

You see an assortment of "wraps" grace menus all over the country and I do order them often, but I have to admit I've never really made them at home.  What's not to love?  All your protein, veggies and fun sauce combined into one. 

It's basically the equivalent of the traditional casserole in the winter months.

And here's the kicker.  Kids will have a tendancy to eat their greens if wrapped up all pretty. Throw in a crunchy chicken finger and your golden.  Great to eat fresh for an easy lunch or wrap them up in tin foil while the chicken is still warm and take to the ball park for an easy dinner on the go.  They are also yummy eaten cold.  Whatever you prefer!
