Weeknight Meal Planner: Week of July 11th
Meaty, briny kalamata olives and a splash of vinegar punch up a quick red pepper sauce for these vegetarian sandwiches. Use slightly thicker bread slices to build a sturdy sandwich base.
This 20-minute chicken salad is creamy, flavorful, and packed full of healthy veggies and protein-rich chicken. Use store-bought Rotisserie chicken for a quick, no-cook dinner on busy weeknights. Serve on whole grain bread with lettuce and tomato or over salad greens tossed in olive oil.
Not only is this loaded fork-and-knife entrée easy and cheesy, it's customizable, too. Make it your own with any produce or herbs you already have in your fridge. If you have the time, you could make your own pesto.
Hash is the king of reinvented leftovers. Here we've added a Southern spin with a make-shift barbecue sauce. Don't miss out on the fried egg—it really makes the hash.
For a casual, fun get-together, set up a make-your-own-fajitas bar with the chicken filling, avocado cream, sour cream, and any other toppings you love, like pico de gallo, sliced fresh jalapeños, or crisp radish slices.
Use respectable tequila and fresh-squeezed lime juice--the ingredients define this cocktail as much as the technique.
