Chicken Salads

We’ll never get tired of a chicken salad recipe for a fast lunch idea!

If you also love this make-ahead dish, and want to include it as part of your weekly meal prep lunch plan, we have some variations on the classic recipe for you to try next.

Typically, the base is often a simple mix of mayonnaise, chopped onion, and chopped celery – and you can never go wrong with this straightforward combo!

But when you’re ready for a creative change, take a look at the following recipes for some inspiration.

1. Cherry Almond Chicken Salad

This cherry chicken salad with almonds is a fresh and fruity update from the old-school version.

Load your salad up with a creative medley of ingredients like toasted almonds, dried tart cherries, sesame seeds, shredded cabbage, freshly squeezed orange juice, and Dijon mustard.

Instead of mayonnaise, we use a cup of plain yogurt instead for a lighter and tangier base.

2. Chicken Lunchtime Salad with Fresh Cherry Vinaigrette

We amplify a simple bed of mixed greens with a texturally entertaining assortment of toppings: chopped roasted chicken, slivered almonds, dried fruit, and crumbled goat cheese.

But the real treat here is a speedy homemade dressing, made by pureeing together fresh cherries with mustard, olive oil, thyme, apple cider vinegar, and honey in a food processor.

We take a speedy shortcut by using leftover roasted chicken – if you don’t have anything left over from a recent dinner, you can also use a prepared rotisserie chicken from the store.

Learn how to make it here.

3. Chicken Waldorf Salad Wraps

If you’re not in the mood for a big bowl of greens, but want something less hefty than a sandwich, you’ll like this playful take on a chicken Waldorf salad.

Pasta Salads

Pasta salads have gained plenty of fame in the cookout party territory – and it’s not hard to guess why!

They are an easy make-ahead dish idea, especially when you know the perfect pasta salad prep strategies.

Naturally, we also love preparing them first thing in the morning for a quick lunch later on in the day.

Ideally assembled a few hours in advance so they have a chance to soak up all of the delicious flavors of their dressings, this category of make-ahead food is perfect for anyone on a busy schedule who loves a balance of hearty carbs and proteins, crisp veggies, and bold flavors.

We won’t shy away from eating them directly in our Tupperware container while we’re still sitting at our work desk, or taking a fast break in between folding laundry and unclogging the shower drain!

5. Lemon Basil Orzo Pasta Salad

The perfect light and bright summer lunch, our simple lemon basil orzo pasta salad is a Mediterranean mix of fresh basil, lemon, tomatoes, and olive oil.

A simple dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and fresh herbs coats al dente penne pasta. We use a mix of basil, oregano, and chopped parsley to add green, herbaceous pops of color and flavor.

Fresh spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, red onions, feta cheese, and kalamata olives are also invited to play in this tangy mix.

You’ll find the recipe here.

Vegetarian Salads

Packed with veggies, herbs, fruits, nuts, seeds, grains, beans, and a whole lot more, there’s nothing you’ll be missing when you make one of our vegetarian salads.

To keep dishes featuring more tender and delicate greens like arugula and spinach in the best condition possible, don’t mix in the dressing until you are ready to eat.

If you’re bringing this type of salad to school or work, store the dressing in its own small container that’s separate from the main meal.

Trust us… your fully dressed creation might look crisp and pretty in the morning when you first make it, but it will be a soggy, soppy mess a few hours later when you’re ready to eat!

8. Arugula Dijon Salad with Figs, Pistachios, and Pea Shoots

Peppery, sweet, and crunchy, celebrate fresh and seasonal summer produce with this easy salad.

Whether paired with a sandwich or salad or slurped up all on its own, you’ll be glad to have a soup recipe – or three, in this case – as an integral part of your lunch lineup.

Warm and comforting, homemade soups bring a charming ease to your lunch break.

Just make sure you choose lighter soups that won’t weigh you down – or else you might want to take a long nap instead of getting back to work!

With that said, the following recipes are all vegetarian, and will energize and invigorate you after a brief pause in your day.

We suggest saving the loaded baked potato soup or crazy-meaty Irish coddle for dinner in the evening!

16 thoughts on “23 Quick and Healthy Lunch Ideas”

  1. These are great lunch ideas! I specially loved number 1 as it’s easy to prepare and I like anything with taco seasoning. No. 7 is another favorite as it features another two favorites: cabbage and bacon. No. 8 looks promising. I love the combination of colors and I think it’s a good way for me to try out quinoa. No. 12 is pretty interesting. I’m curious how teriyaki dressing goes with pasta. Never tried that combo before. Oh my no. 16 and 17 are making me hungry again. I just had my late dinner, but these two are something I thoroughly would like to have if they’re available right now. Let me say thank you for this amazing list. 🙂

  2. This is a great list. They all look tasty, not to mention pretty enough to serve for company. I just love serving pretty food.

    Number two is going to be number one on my list (with a little adjustment). Thanks so much for the inspiration. These are some of my favorite flavors and will work perfectly with a low carb tortilla instead of the pictured option. I can have my lunch and eat it too!

  3. My mom usually cooks different meals throughout the week, this is really going to be helpful for her, she probalby will add some of these to her recipe list. Thank you for sharing.

  4. These look really healthy, delicious and fulfilling, glad to have stumbled upon this article! This month I’m on a tight budget so some of these recipes would be amazing to prepare in bulk. The Russian chicken salad, quesadillas and pasta salad look really good and they’re pretty easy to make!

  5. I am so happy to see this post! I have been packing granola bars, apples, crackers, cheese slices and other snacky foods for way too long but didn’t really have any good ideas for cold lunches.
    I’m not a huge fan of salad for a meal but some of these looked really good. I want to try the Tex-Mex dip and the sushi looks good too! I absolutely love sushi and a simple recipe looks like it will be fun to try. I’ve been craving ramen noodle soup a lot lately and really like the idea of adding fresh vegetables.

  6. I love the idea for those deli meat roll-ups. As a single person, I can never seem to finish a loaf of bread. I will try this idea to skip the bread and wind up with a healthier lunch.

  7. Really interesting list of meals, and a few I can add to my rotation, especially the ones ( being single) where I can cook it one time, and then have it a couple days in a row. I really enjoyed the pesto salad idea, and it will be the first one I cook up.

  8. Wow! So many of these sound absolutely outstanding. I also had no idea you could make mayo with bean-water! No.9 sounds and looks delicious, but the photo shows what appears to be some barley in it also. Barley goes great in soups and salads and I had no idea until I added some to some left over soup. No. 6 caught my eye because of the walnuts. I love walnuts and often just snack on them by themselves and sometimes with a bit of cinnamon and maybe some sugar. That and an apple, or buttered toast is a really delicious snack. Being from Texas, the idea of a bean-stuffed potato a la no. 11 sounds too hard to pass up. I’m going to have to try a variation of that for sure! Finally, the green tea cookies in no. 19 look so good and I never considered baking with green tea. Maybe I’ll make some green tea beignets some time! The vegan banana pudding also sounds really good. If you’ve never tried cashew butter, it’s amazing so I’m sure it goes really well the banana and almond. The creativity of these dishes is outstanding and inspiring to those of us looking for new ideas. Thanks so much Allison!

    • Cashew butter is one of my absolute favorites, Bob! I love to make a quick wrap by spreading some on a tortilla with sliced banana, fresh berries, and a drizzle of local honey, and I put it in the toaster oven for a few minutes before serving – so sweet and tasty.

      I hope you enjoy making these, and experimenting to make them your own!

  9. Wow, I will asume your post was the sign I was looking for to start my diet. I have a huge problem when it comes time, because. with work and other responsibilities I don’t have much. I vouch for the apple chips tho, I’ve done them before and they are delicious!

  10. Im forever stressing about what to pack for my kid’s lunch and I usually run out of ideas and find myself preparing the same things over and over. She doesn’t complain, but I know she would really appreciate a more varied menu. This article has really helped me a lot in that regard. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Thinking of something that I can take to work for lunch that I will actually enjoy is a pain but this list will make it easier.mim thinking about trying the roast beef quesadilla for lunch tomorrow. It seems pretty simple to make and looks delicious. The best things about a lot of the foods that you listed is that they are very healthy, like the title suggests. I used to eat out a couple times a week, because a cold turkey sandwich every single day was not going to cut it, but I think that I will be able to eat something tasty and healthy every day of the week now. Thanks!

  12. What I love about these ideas is that most are vegetarian and are adaptable. I’ve been using avocado in some dishes now as a spread or dip, and am being more adventurous with sauces.

    Ramen and noodle soups are so versatile, and quick and easy to make and you can add spices to them or more vegetables to add flavor. My dad like to add some bok choi to his noodles and it cooks itself naturally. I’ve eaten it cold and it tastes great with some sesame oil.

  13. OH, my that is a lot of ideas! And most of them appeal to me, especially the salads. Mandarin pasta intrigues me (and my six year old is bound to love that – she loves pasta and mandarins are her favourite fruit!)

    Mexican potato skins look delicious, too…

    Another easy tasty option is cutting an avocado in half, topping it with sliced tomatoes then sliced cheese and putting it under the grill briefly (it melts the cheese and just gently warms the avocado to enhance its flavour). Yum and healthy!
