Bruschetta Chicken Pesto Wraps

Trying to get back at making new recipes now that I'm back to work....but I need FAST and EASY!!  This was exactly that - and it was tasty!!  Our pitas had mold so we had to settled for bread, but it was still amazing!!!

Recipe OBB - serves 2 tortillas or 12 mini pitas

1 tomato, diced  (seeds removed)
1 tablespoon minced onion
1-2 tablespoons fresh minced basil or 1 teaspoon dry basil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
kosher salt
black pepper
1 tablespoon light mayo
1 tablespoon light sour cream or plain greek yogurt
2 tablespoons pesto
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice and a little zest
1 cup shredded or diced cooked chicken breast, about 4 ounces
1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce or spinach leaves
2 torillas, flat breads, rolls, pitas, etc.

Combine diced tomato, onion, basil, and balsamic vinegar.  Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside.

Combine mayo, sour cream, pesto, lemon juice and a few grates of the lemon zest.  Stir mixture and combine it with chicken and pine nuts, stirring until combined.  Layer lettuce on tortillas (or carb of choice), top with chicken mixture, and then bruschetta.
