Waldorf Chicken Salad Wraps

I found this recipe on the blog "Culinary in the Country" but it is originally from Ellie Krieger. It is a good, healthy version of chicken salad I made a couple small changes in the recipe below. Also, we only had 12 oz of chicken and it turned out fine. It would serve 4 people. We both liked it a lot , and Nick is even willing to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow:) It is good for a quick dinner. The nutrition values are approximate as I made a couple minor changes from the original.

3/4 cups nonfat Greek-style yogurt
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
1 teaspoon Honey Mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon minced thyme
1 pound cooked, skinless chicken breast cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 cup seedless grapes, sliced in 1/2
1/4 cup toasted, coarsely chopped walnuts
1 medium granny smith apple, diced (about 3/4 cup)
2 celery stalks, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
4 large leaves Romaine lettuce, rinsed and patted dry
4 whole-wheat wraps, about 8 inches in diameter

In a small bowl, combine the Greek-style yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, salt and thyme until smooth. Fold in chicken, grapes, celery, walnuts and apples. Season with pepper.
Place 1 lettuce leaf on a wrap. Spoon about 3/4 cup of the chicken filling onto wrap and roll wrap around filling.
