Easy salads for lunch or dinner

Work lunches don’t have to be sandwiches over and over again. Try making a few cold salads and keep them in your fridge to enjoy when you’re in a rush. Two of my favorites are pasta salad and coleslaw.

Pasta salad can be made so many different ways. For dressing use olive oil and vinegar (or lemon), mayonnaise and spices or a prepared salad dressing that you enjoy. Add veggies (peppers, green onion, broccoli, carrots etc.) and mix thoroughly. Leave in the fridge overnight for the flavors to mix and enjoy the next day.

Coleslaw is another great salad to serve with fish for a healthy dinner or bring to work the next day. I really like using red cabbage and shred it with carrots, onion, a bit of celery and fresh dill with lemon juice and mayonnaise. For an extra kick, add a dash of chili powder. Again, leave in the fridge for a few hours to overnight.

There are a lot of great cold salads you can make ahead of time for lunches, leaving you a bit of extra time to enjoy your morning coffee or sleep in.
