The Perfect Office Lunch Salad


This salad is filling/healthy/crunchy/herby.  And it will prevent you from forking out $18 when you're jonesing for a salad at your desk.

It’s also supposed to be a make-your-life-easy kind of salad so don’t stress if you’re missing an exact ingredient. Start with lettuce and a rotisserie chicken, because you need those for sure.
If you don’t have mint and dill you can use whatever herbs you have in your fridge, cilantro, basil, etc.  If you don’t have almonds use whatever nut you have in your pantry, walnuts, pistachios or pine nuts work well.

  • 1 clove of garlic (chopped)


  1. Combine all ingredients except for olive oil, lemon juice and chopped garlic
