Chicken and Grape Salad Lettuce Wraps

"My grandma started making this recipe for my dad when he was little. My mom and I took the original recipe and made it healthier,” says Grace. “I love to adapt recipes and make them healthy. I would serve the Chicken and Grape Salad Lettuce Wraps with a fresh quinoa salad. When I grow up, I want to be a nutritionist, to make a change in people’s lives, and to go further with helping children and families eat healthy." - Grace Keating, age 11, Nevada
