A (Semi) Sophisticated Lunch

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.

Sandwich with Smoked Salmon and a Chocolate Chip Cookie

Continuing my slider infatuation, today I made a robust, full-flavored sandwich with smoked salmon, sliced avocado, and pickled onion -- a grown-up lunch filled with all sorts of good nutrients. And to remind them they are children, I added a chocolate chip cookie for dessert.

Thanks for posting the pickled onion recipe! I can't wait to give it a whirl ;)

Those pickled onions are truly amazing. I love to add them to grain salads for a little salty/vinegary kick. They are also really good finely diced and added to guacamole.

Here's a weird question: are those the ginger-pickled onions from Stinky?

Not a weird question -- but they're ones I made from this recipe: I'm sort of obsessed with these pickled onions. I make a big batch every couple of weeks and put them in everything.

That's a great idea. I'll try them soon!
