Some people are “breakfast people”, but I am “lunch people”. I love lunch food! I’ll take a sandwich and a salad over pancakes and bacon any day.
I love that the OrganicGirl salads make it easy to make a quick salad for lunch. You can find OrganicGirl salads and dressings at select Target stores in the West Coast, Western, Midwestern, and Northeastern states. You can go to Target.com to determine if your store carries the OrganicGirl line. If you sign up for the OrganicGirl newsletter you can get a $1/1 coupon.
I actually used the OrganicGirl greens in every part of my lunch. I use the Organic Girl 50/50 mix for my salad, I used the OrganicGirl Baby Spring Mix in my salad and the OrganicGirl Baby Spinach in my smoothie. My lunch was delicious! Check out the recipes below for a Chicken Salad Sandwich and Summer Smoothie featuring OrganicGirl salads and greens.
The salad was super easy to make. It’s so convenient because the salad is ready to go. It’s even washed 3 times for you. I just took some of the OrganicGirl 50/50 mix added tomatoes, carrots and onions and dressed with with OrganicGirl Herb Goddess dressing.
OrganicGirl Fresh Designer Dressings are made with 100% organic fruits and vegetables. The fresh whole fruits and veggie are blended with herbs, oils and spices to create fresh dressings that you will love. Target carries four of the yummy flavors, you’ll find Avocado Cilantro, Herb Goddess, Lemon Agave and Pomegranate Balsamic.
Next up on the lunch menu was a Chicken Salad Sandwich. This is one of my favorite sandwiches! I love to toast my bread so it’s crunchy and slightly warm.

Slice bread and butter one side of each slice. In grill pan place bread butter side down and toast until it becomes golden brown with grill marks. To assemble sandwich add chicken filling to slice of bread and top with and generous serving of OrganicGirl Baby Spring Mix, Top off with another slice of bread and enjoy!
