My entry in the lunch contest

The folks at 100 Days of Real Food hosted a lunch box contest on Facebook last week. You were supposed to make a real food lunch and then post a picture of it that day. Most of the pictures were of kids lunches that were sent to school.

Here’s what I posted.


It’s a salad made from salmon, quinoa, cucumbers and grape tomatoes. The dressing is cider vinegar, honey and olive oil and the salad is topped with shaved parmesan cheese. I used this recipe for Quinoa and Salmon Salad for inspiration. I also had fresh pineapple chunks, along with Triscuit crackers and a few Peppercorn cheese slices.
