Every week we take a peek inside the lunches of the luckiest kids in Brooklyn. Read on, suppress your jealousy, and get a little brown bag inspiration.
Today's lunch was born of last minute inspiration. We had leftover roasted salmon in the fridge as well as a bucket load of arborio rice that was cooked in boiling salted water, like pasta, so the grains hold together and work well for salads. A salmon and rice salad was calling, so I mixed them up with some baby kale and a dollop or two of leftover green sauce. As I tossed it all together, I splashed in some olive oil and lemon juice, and lunch for the kids (and me!) was done. Our kids love the chocolate macaroons from Whole Foods Market and for a sprinkle of fresh color, they each got a clementine. This is the kind of lunch that makes me happy -- lots of flavor, a nod to health, an interactive element (the clementine) and a treat that I hope they'll remember me for!
