Healthy lunch wraps

Healthy Lunch Wraps
I could eat these lunch wraps every day of the week! A Dijon mustard vinaigrette adds bold, tangy flavor to the chickpea, kale, and avocado filling.

Egg Salad Sandwich
I’m not kidding when I say that this is THE BEST egg salad recipe! It’s briny and bright, packed with fresh herbs, capers, and lemon juice. For an equally tasty vegan version, sub crumbled tofu for the hard boiled eggs.
