As I work from home, I like to have a salad for lunch. It’s light, healthy and generally is the best option to stave off a mid afternoon energy slump.
However, preparing a salad for one can be more difficult than you think. I hate cucumber and tomato in a salad and prefer to keep the ratio of lettuce leaves down and rather include more interesting vegetables, seeds, nuts, cheeses and cold meats. It is particularly difficult when you are on your own and don’t want to open three different packets of things just to make one salad. I’m also cooking all the time at the moment for a project I am working on, so I really don’t want to spend more than five minutes on my lunch afterwards.
Here is yesterday’s salad with some leftover roasted butternut squash and a lentil and quinoa salad from M&S which really wasn’t that great.
So, I’m hoping you can help me. What would you put in a quick salad for one for lunch? I need some inspiration!
Addendum: here’s today’s variation on a Waldorf salad with feta (apologies for the quality of the photo, was taken on my iPhone)
