Here’s a healthy St. Patrick’s Day treat for the little leprechauns!
1 whole wheat pita or rice cake
1 serving of precooked, shredded chicken or very low sodium canned tuna
1 tsp each light olive oil and red wine vinegar
1/8 tsp each ground black pepper and onion powder
1 dried cranberry
1 sliver of red apple sliced to resemble a smile
1/4 cup shredded carrots
2 leaves romaine lettuce, washed
wrap or rice cake on a plate. In a small bowl, combine chicken or tuna with oil, vinegar, pepper and onion, tossing gently. Spread onto the middle of the wrap to make a face. Add raisins for eyes, the cranberry for a nose and the apple slice for a mouth. Arrange the carrots at the bottom of the face to make a leprechaun’s beard. Tear the lettuce to make two long pieces for a hat brim and 3-4 smaller pieces for the top of the hat. Arrange these at the top of the face, and serve.
