I’m back for another meal prep idea and this time it’s Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Salad with Hummus!
My love for hummus runs DEEP. I could go though about 1 cup of it a day and it would be no hardship 🙂 I try to find ways to work it into just about everything I do! Making a wrap… add hummus. Having friends over for dinner… obviously we need a Mezze platter. Prepping salads for Thomas to take for lunch throughout the week… throw some hummus on there! Between Thomas requesting a healthy lunch on the regular, and phone calls from my sister asking what she should bring for lunch to her office, we’ve landed here with Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Salads.
These are easy to prep on a Sunday afternoon and then take for lunches throughout the week. The base is just some shredded romaine lettuce – or any other lettuce you prefer and some cooked quinoa! On top of that I like to add in whatever is on hand in my kitchen which is usually, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, feta and olives. And pretty much none of that actually requires any cooking, I’ll marinate some chicken and grill that on a Sunday and then chop it up and add to the salads throughout the week. And then to top it all off, each day I’ll put a big dollop of hummus on top and send it to the office with some lemon wedges. Easy! And all of it can be prepped ahead of time. Add the chicken and hummus each day before you leave for work and you’ll be ready to roll! Happy lunching.
