Super-Filling Summer Salads
Need some go-to lunch ideas to beat the heat this summer? These tote-able salads are perfect for sunny picnics, poolside lunches and all kinds of summertime fun.
Summer is here! And while that means school is out for the next couple of months, I’ll still be packing up work lunches for my husband and myself, along with family lunches for day trips and camps. During the summer months, I tend to pack more salads. They are cool, crisp and don't need to be reheated, making them a go-to choice for beating the heat during lunchtime.
When filling my lunchboxes, I look for salads that include some kind of protein—either nuts, meat or fish. These types of salads fill you up and leave you feeling satisfied ‘til your next snack or meal. Here are five of my favorite salads for filling my family’s summer lunchboxes.
Let’s start with one of my favorite salads—Mediterranean Chicken-Pasta Salad packed in the Sistema's Lunch Cube to Go. The split levels of this container are great for packing salads, keeping all the other lunch items separate and dry. Along with the pasta, I packed a peach, some snap peas with dressing for dunking and a Fiber One® Oats & Chocolate Chewy Bar.
