  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar or cider vinegar
  • Cooked Chicken cut in squares (about 8 ounces)
  • 4 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce

  2. Divide chicken among tortillas. Top with equal portions of the corn salad and lettuce. Roll up. Serve the wraps cut in half or quarters, if desired.

Tips & Notes

  • Tip: To remove corn kernels from the cob, stand an ear of corn on one end and slice the kernels off with a sharp knife. One ear will yield about 1/2 cup kernels.
