Fruit: Diced mango
Treat: Banana and choc chip muffin
Extras: Ciabatta roll and pot of hummus
I went to Pret the other day for a quick work lunch with a friend and found myself eating one of their Chef's Italian Chicken Salads. It was quite good, and also seemed extremely easy to put together - just whack in all your ingredients and you're done, no fussing about. So I made my own version with a few cheats - bought roasted chicken slices instead of roasting our own, and the jarred variety of roasted red capsicum. Coupled with a fresh ciabatta roll and a pot of (store-bought) hummus this easily beats the Pret version any day, and is a very easy lunchbox idea when you're looking for a quick fix.
