Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap

Mike Nadelman
The dish is exactly what it sounds like: pieces of cooked chicken breast and chopped romaine lettuce tossed with Caesar dressing and rolled up into a big tortilla. Croutons make the texture interesting, amping up the crunchiness of fresh lettuce. Flavor-wise, it’s like a milder version of chicken shawarma, the garlicky, anchovy-seasoned dressing evocative of toum with the volume turned way, way down. The key to making the wrap work is in not skimping on making the dressing from scratch: A tortilla isn't going to save a bad salad. According to Mark Watson, a Twitter user who sent me the Reddit thread, the wrap is perfect for hangovers, with a portability that factors into its utility. He continued, “You can’t eat a salad in a motorcycle sidecar.”
