Enjoy spring flavors in better for you chicken wrap

One of the earliest crops harvested in the spring is the chive. Chopped chives - both the green foliage and the purple flower - impart a mild onion flavor to soups, salads and dressings. This low-fat version of chicken salad uses chopped chives fresh from the garden or your favorite farmers market, and the cream cheese and yogurt combination make a creamy, tangy substitute for mayonnaise.

1 lb. cooked white meat chicken, chopped
3 oz. low-fat cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. low-fat plain Greek yogurt
1/2 c. chopped chives
