The epitome of a quick weeknight meal, this fresh chicken salad is elevated with a homemade tahini ranch dressing. All of the elements can be prepped ahead for a meal that can come together super fast.
Smarts: Be sure to season the chicken salad mixture with salt and pepper before folding it into the wraps - the right amount of seasoning will give these the most flavor.

Easy, yummy, healthy, fresh flavors — my 7 year old said, “I don’t like egg salad,” and then ate two wraps and all his veggies. This is a perfect summer meal — especially if you cook the eggs ahead of time.0 Helpful
I love this wrap!0 Helpful
Good ranch recipe, and it was good in the egg salad. I would have preferred bread to the wraps and celery to the cucumbers, but otherwise pretty solid meal. We doubled the sauce and 1.5x the egg salad to make sure we had enough.0 Helpful
Could have used some Tomatoes or even bell pepper, but ranch sauce was delicious.0 Helpful
Great egg salad recipe! Doubled the eggs. Added capers. Added zucchini to carrots to dip and pickles on the side to bulk. Dressing was great, though a little runny since I only used coconut yogurt instead of any mayo. I added some of my vegan ranch to it to make it creamier and used diced celery instead of chives. Delicious!0 Helpful
I was not a fan of these. The texture was too mushy overall and it was more like 3 small servings than 4 regular servings. I ended up adding a can of tuna and some miracle whip to finish it off. The homemade ranch was delicious though a little watery for my taste. I'll just make a tzatziki sauce next time.0 Helpful
