Sometimes, a fresh and colorful lunch can brighten up an otherwise drab workday. With just a little prep the night before, you can pack delicious salads in your Fit & Fresh containers to enjoy on your lunch break the next day.
Why not switch up your salad game by incorporating seasonal ingredients? Here a few tasty ideas:
Pomegranate, walnut and goat cheese salad
Pomegranates are in season right now, which means you should grab every chance you get to use this juicy, mouthwatering and antioxidant-loaded fruit in your meals. For a restaurant-quality salad, start with a base of arugula, then add pomegranate seeds, crumbled goat cheese and chopped walnuts on top. Toss together in your Salad Shaker Container – it contains a built-in Dressing Dispenser to make transporting vinaigrettes and other dressing to the office easy and mess-free. Pomegranate is in season – be sure to add it to your salads!
Butternut squash, apple and turkey bacon salad
Looking for a more filling salad to fuel your busy day? Try this delicious and rustic winter salad. Quickly bake a butternut squash in the oven until it’s tender – or use leftovers from dinner to make preparation even easier. Then cube the squash and toss it with spinach leaves. Add chopped cooked lean turkey bacon, sliced apples, chopped pecans and a little gorgonzola cheese, then pack away to enjoy at lunch.
Grilled chicken and cranberry Caesar salad
Jazz up a traditional chicken salad with the addition of dried cranberries – their tart yet slightly sweet flavor adds an interesting twist. Just toss romaine lettuce, shaved Parmesan cheese, sliced grilled chicken, a light Caesar dressing and a half cup of dried cranberries to your Salad Shaker Container, then secure the lid and shake to combine. Just make sure to choose low-sugar or sugar-free dried cranberries to keep the meal as balanced as possible.
