Heat a non stick pan to medium-high; add a bit of olive oil and pan grill the chicken strips for 3-5 min per side. Set aside to cool.
Lay down a large tortilla wrap and layer on lettuce, chicken, tomato, avocado and drizzle on your homemade Caesar dressing.
Homemade Dairy Free Caesar Dressing
In a blender combine soaked cashews and filtered water and blend until you reach a smooth consistency. 2. Next, in a medium bowl add in your capers, garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, mustard and pepper.
Using a whisk slowly add in your olive oil to emulsify the lemon juice with the oil for a creamy texture.
Slowly, add in cashew cream and mix well until combined.
Notes: *Store the dressing in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. **For best results, assemble the wraps the night before or morning of your packed lunch. This will keep them crisp and fresh instead of getting on the softer side. ***Store any leftover caesar dressing in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days.

what is the nutritional value of this meal?
Looks so good! Do you have a link to your ceasar dressing recipe?
It sounds great! What brands would you recommend for brown rice tortillas and where can you buy?
thank you!! I dont have the bag with me anymore but I will try and find it for you.
Does the cashew need to soak over night?
Yes ideally. Or you can soak them in boiling hot water for 15 minutes in a pinch
Could you make the dressing with hemp hearts instead of cashews? Would you still use 1/2 c?
You could try it for sure! I use hemp hearts all the time for salad dressings and it delish. And yes I would use the same measurements.
Would tofu or soy chicken work in this recipe? I love the combination of ingredients in this recipe!
