10 Minute Lunch


I wasn’t quite sure what to call this, but it is basically something you can throw together with whatever is in your fridge/pantry in a few minutes. It is less of a recipe and more of a framework, but give it a try!

Here is what I used with alternate suggestions:

  • cucumbers quartered and sliced (feel free to use other veggies)
  • tomatoes, cut into small pieces (see above)
  • diced red onion (spring onions or chives would work, or omit)
  • diced feta cheese (could use mozzarella, something else, or skip)
  • fresh herbs (I used dill, but basil or oregano would also be good. A pinch of dried herbs would also work.)
  • olive oil
  • fresh lemon juice or a mild vinegar
  • A complex carbohydrate of some type (beans or quinoa or similar) could be added also. I had some leftover hummus we made yesterday so I had that on the side.

Again, feel free to toss in whatever you have. Serve alone, on lettuce, or with bread.

Toddler Plate (I knew the salad with feta wouldn’t be a favorite but provided it for a new taste. I gave him some extra veggies, hummus, and prosciutto/serrano ham.
