Thai-Inspired Chicken Salad with Peanut Dressing
This was a perfect salad. I gently poached some chicken breasts and followed the directions almost exactly.

Arugula Salad with Pear and Blue Cheese
Cheese-Crusted Grilled Cheese
The sky’s the limit when it comes to fillings for grilled cheese sandwiches, but the coating for this one is the star. I added a bit of chopped fresh parsley and garlic to the Parmesan and used a homemade seeded bread.
Cooking slowly is key so that the crust doesn’t get too brown before the cheese melts. A delicious treat to brighten a dismal winter’s day.sadie
Smoked Salmon Pasta
I made this smoked salmon pasta for dinner as I was pleasantly surprised I had everything on hand to make it. And I’m so glad I did! If you love smoked salmon and want a new way of enjoying it other than on a bagel with cream cheese, then give this recipe a whirl. It’s creamy, smokey, and really simple to prepare.Aryn S.

Lunch Recipe FAQs
If you’ve got access to a refrigerator and a microwave, the sky’s the limit as to what you can tote along to work. Soups, easy pasta recipes, last night’s leftovers, and egg-salad sandwiches are all great options.
If you’re going to be on the go, and need a quick lunch that’s portable and easy to eat, try this Vietnamese-style chicken salad, or a classic tuna salad sandwich.
These Mediterranean eggplant wraps or these tandoori chicken wraps take a little extra time but can be prepared in advance. If you’d prefer a hot lunch, try this leftover pasta frittata, which makes use of leftovers and can be reheated for lunch, or make up a big batch of easy chili and stash it in the freezer.
For an easy, elegant light lunch, serve this chicken avocado cranberry salad, toasted sourdough bread, and a pitcher of sweet tea. Round out the meal with a plate of old-fashioned peanut butter cookies. For a heartier entree, try this asparagus, egg, and cheese strata.
