Lunch is our workday happy place...until we remember that we packed a mess of wilted greens otherwise known as the sad desk salad. This recipe for lemon-roasted potatoes, chicken and spinach with tzatziki from Allison Day’s Modern Lunch: +100 Recipes for Assembling the New Midday Meal is the antidote: It’s easy to meal-prep for homemade lunches all week long and doesn’t skimp on fresh, satisfying flavor.
“The riot of textures, colors and flavors in this dish offers a visual and physical boost at noon,” Day writes. “It’s salad-esque but eats heartier, rooted by sweet potatoes permeated with lemon, juicy chicken, tender spinach, briny olives and cooling tzatziki to sauce it all. Enjoy as is today, and take along whole-grain pitas to fill or lavash to wrap for something different tomorrow.” We like your style, Allison.
To make it vegetarian, she suggests replacing the chicken with cooked chickpeas, butter beans or hard-boiled eggs—just add it on top of the spinach instead of roasting the potatoes and carrots.
Sad salad? We don’t know her.
