Tropical Chicken Salad Wrap

It was summer here today with a high in the upper 80's.  We needed something light and cool for dinner and I found this from the website   I had to make a few changes, they are noted below.  This was very good and 'refreshing'.

  • 2 cup(s) cooked skinless chicken, shredded
  • 1 can(s) (1-ounce) mandarin oranges , drained (I used 3 fresh cuties, cut into pieces)
  • 1/2 cup(s) shredded coconut, toasted
  • 1/2 cup(s) roasted cashews (any nut would work, I used chopped almonds)
  • 1 bunch(es) scallions, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime  (about 2 Tbls of lime juice)
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 1/3 cup(s) mayonnaise
  • lettuce leaves 
  • tortillas                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Mix everything except the lettuce and tortillas together.  Lay the leaves on the tortillas and spread the salad on top, roll it up and enjoy!
