My partnership with Blue Diamond Almonds provided a great snack for my recent kayaking adventure, delicious in a Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad Wrap!

There are many ways to define adventure. Where we live here in central Oregon, there’s so much to do! But this time of year, kayaking is our all time favorite. My friends came to visit me this past weekend for a girls’ weekend, and and we picked the perfect day to kayak the Deschutes River.

Starting at Haper’s Bridge, we drifted along the soft currents, gazing at gorgeous meadows, with the smell of pine and forest, all under one fluffy cloud that seemed to follow us.

You can see the tip of Mt. Bachelor, still with so much snow!

We eventually took a turn and paddled the Spring River. The Spring River is a tributary, only about 1 mile long, that feeds into the Deschutes River. The crystal clear and cold waters were so beautiful, aqua blue, with the temp about 5 degrees cooler than the Deschutes waters.

We got our workout in, paddling upstream against the wind, and then we pulled over for a rewarding lunch. We sat in the sun, sipping our Kombucha drinks, enjoying a Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad Wrap. So good!

Friends, have you tried Blue Diamond Roasted Salted Almonds on salads or in wraps? My current, most favorite lunch to bring kayaking, or on a bike ride, is a Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad Wrap, cut it in half.

Of course it’s even better when shared with a friend. Or two.

We also love to snack on almonds–full of protein, a handful of sustained energy for the entire day! They’re the most delicious, healthy, on-the-go snack (or lunch) for an active lifestyle.

Upstream, we startled two adult Canadian geese and their little ones. We watched cranes flying right in front of our kayaks, and other wildlife along the bank.

Kayaking is so relaxing, and good for the soul–especially when your belly is full of food that’s good for you, and you’re with great friends!

Munching on almonds is a great snack, but they’re also delicious in recipes!

Making wraps is super easy. Buy rotisserie chicken, a few fresh ingredients, and add nuts for a crunch (and flavor).

The secret to rolling a tortilla is to heat it in the microwave first.

Wrap the wrap (I like that), and take it with you on your next adventure!

Here are a few other recipes that we’ve enjoyed adding almonds to: Savoy Jicama Slaw Salad, Greek Yogurt WafflesCamping Raspberry Butter Cake, Blueberry Almond Pancakes Recipe [Two Peas and Their Pod], and Almond Crusted Chicken [Food Charlatan].

Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad Wrap

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup cooked, shredded or chopped chicken (I use rotisserie)
  • 2 Tbsp. dried cranberries
  • 4 Tbsp. feta cheese
  • Sliced cucumber
  • Blue Diamond Roasted Salted Almonds (or your favorite Blue Diamond flavor), roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. Caesar or Blue Cheese vinaigrette dressing
  • 4 large whole wheat flour tortillas

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, combine the romaine, chicken, cranberries, feta cheese, and sliced cucumber. Stir to combine.
  2. Microwave the tortilla for 10-15 seconds, so that it will be easy to roll. Spread the lettuce mixture down the middle of the tortilla. Sprinkle with almonds. Fold in the two sides of the tortilla, then roll up like a burrito.
  3. Cut wrap in half to serve.
  4. Any flavor of Blue Diamond Almonds is delicious!
