As much as I love the detailed meal with a marinated tenderloin or slow roasted bird, I sometimes can truly appreciate a meal that is simple, takes virtually no time and is just as yummy as those times you spend the afternoon in the kitchen preparing a meal for friends and family.
Irregardless of how relaxing my large meal preparation may be for me, my two-job-social-butterfly-ish lifestyle does not always allow me the time to make grand meals every day and night...that is, unless I do not want to sleep. And I definitely want my sleep to keep up with that busy life. So began the hunt to find quick and yummy lunches for work that fill that small amount of time from when I wake in the morning to when I head to work.
This lunch's prep time is 10 minutes or less - depending on how fast you can chop.
- 4 Roma Tomatoes - Diced
- 1 Med Size Red Onion - Diced
- 2 Cucumbers - Diced
- Feta Cheese
- Greek Dressing
- Sandwich Wraps
This doesn't need a lot of instructions with it. Dice all of the tomatoes, onion & cucumber and store in container together. Wash spinach well. Both of those steps done in the morning. At lunch, assemble sandwich, lay spinach in the middle of the wrap. Top with veggies, feta cheese & Greek dressing and wrap the sandwich up.
1. Add the dressing to the diced veggies before you head to work. Marinading them could bring more of that flavor out. This depends on how many days it will take you to finish the mixture though. If it sits for too many days, you could end up with soggy veggies.
2. Depending on the amount of meal planning you do in your household, if you have left over chicken or steak that is seasoned in the similar fashion, it would work great with this dish.
FYI - It goes great with a side of Greek yogurt and some sweet potato chips for me today.
