Not a salad, not a sandwich – just a terrific flavor combination to eat out of hand. Use leftover cooked chicken or rotisserie chicken for added convenience.

Chicken Lettuce Bundles with Sesame Herb Dressing


Sesame Herb Dressing:

2/3 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup, plus 1 Tbsp. NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar Original or Roasted Garlic, divided

1/3 cup chopped fresh mint

1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro or basil

1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
