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.
Mason Jar Tex Mex Quinoa Salad with Cilantro Lime Creamy Dressing from Fit Foodie Finds
The mason jar salad goes Tex Mex! I love the gorgeous colors and the satiating scoops of quinoa and black beans.
Rainbow Salad in a Jar with Avocado Hummus from Oh My Veggies
Layered perfectly to avoid sog, this gorgeous salad touts what is quite possibly the perfect dressing.
Roasted Pepper Feta Salad
Gotta love a salad that tastes better and better the longer it sits. Smoky roasted peppers and salty feta are a match made in lunchbox heaven.
Asian Noodle Salad Jars from Foxes Love Lemons
Cute and delicious! It doesn’t get much better than these scrumptious little numbers.
Cherry Hazelnut Orzo Salad
Tart cherries, crunchy hazelnuts, and refreshing mint. This is a lunchtime go. Just sub swap dried cherries for fresh when they’re out of season.
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.
This is a great roundup! Salads make the perfect to-go lunch, but I’m not so good at figuring out new creative lunches to take.
Thank you for sharing my recipe!!!
I always pack a portable salad for lunch through the week – cheap and healthy and delicious too!
I can’t wait to add these into the rotation – I love the avocado hummus idea – yum yum!
