5 Perfectly Portable Lunchbox Salads

Every Friday I feature a small round-up of five delicious recipes from here and around the web. This week’s topic: 5 Perfectly Portable Lunchbox Salads.

There’s something so satisfying about pulling a tasty pre-made salad out of your lunch bag. Why do lunch salads taste so much better when they’ve traveled with you, far away from home? It’s a mystery. But we don’t need to be Sherlock Holmes to know that these salads are delicious far, near, or anywhere in between.

End on a sweet note …

Desserts in jars are quite possibly the best sweets of all – and they’re perfect for lunchboxes, too! Try Key Lime Pie in a Jar, a little Rhubarb Crisp, or some irresistible Butterscotch Pudding.
