What should I have for lunch? This question plagues us all year long, but summertime lunches should be light and easy to make. I tend to crave salads or sandwiches, so I tracked down some yummy recipes to share.
Summertime lunch recipe #1 German potato salad.
Ok, yes, I know German potato salad is warm, but this one has bacon in it and it looks so delightful that I had to share it.
Summertime lunch recipe #2 Caribbean Salad with Sweet Orange Vinaigrette
Finding a salad without tomatoes is a challenge. I love them, but can’t eat them. This is a yummy recipe without tomatoes, but chock full of other good veggies. Plus, who doesn’t enjoy a good homemade dressing?
Summertime lunch recipe #3 Rotisserie Chicken Wraps
You know those chickens pre-roasted and for sale near the deli in most large grocery stores? This recipe uses that stuff in five different ways.
Summertime lunch recipe #4 Chinese Cabbage Salad
The dressing alone on this salad makes it worth trying. I’m a big fan of dressing. Hooray for peanut butter!
Summertime lunch recipe #5 Strawberry, Bacon, and Feta Salad
I enjoy the combination in this salad. It seems so complex, but it looks pretty simple to make, plus there’s bacon.
Summertime lunch recipe #6 No Mayo Avocado Chicken Salad
Finally, we have a recipe I featured on the blog not too long ago, but I love it so much that I have to share it again. If you love avocado, this is the sandwich for you. Many of the spices and nuts can be switched out for whatever you have in your cabinet or whatever you like.
