One of the most popular requests I get from readers is for simple, on-the-go, make-ahead, lunch ideas. You know, something you can quickly whip up in the evening and pack for lunch the next day.
I think it’s important that the recipe idea be FAST since most of us are probably making it at the end of the night after we’ve already cooked dinner!
If this is true for you, than you may appreciate this super quick Salmon Scallion Salad.
I love my canned salmon. It’s so rich and flavorful and really gives tuna a run for its money.
This recipe combines salmon, Greek yogurt, a kiss of mayo, scallions, and frozen peas (easy-peasy). Pack that along with some butter lettuce leaves and some Kashi TLC Pita Chips Original 7-Grain Crackers w/ Sea Salt (whew… a mouthful I know – but I wanted to share the full title incase you want to try them! – p.s. Here’s what the box looks like):
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ll eat my salmon (or tuna) salad with crackers over a piece of bread any day of the week!! The crackers make ‘the eating’ that much more fun.
These 7-Grain Kashi crackers were the perfect partners for my Salmon Salad because they are nice and hearty so I didn’t even need to pack a fork because I used my crackers to scoop up the salad. Perfect for an on-the go lunch!
I ALSO love to add a kiss of salt to just about everything I eat, so the fact that crackers come pre-kissed with sea salt makes them that much better in my book.
Be sure to pack it all up the night before this way when the morning comes you can grab your coffee and your lunch without having to think too much about it!
What kind of lunches do you like to bring to work? We always love a little inspiration around here!!
