I'm in a rut for suggestions that will be easy for packed lunches, what do you make?

Pasta with pesto and grated parmesan is nice mixed in with salad leaves

I do a sort of greek salad-inspired version with crumbled feta, olives, cucumber and tomato in it.

Feta, Basil leaves, and halved cherry tomatoes (I also add some crushed garlic). Tastes better the next day.

curry powder mixed with mayo, add chopped peppers, olives and sweetcorn. Could add chicken too, I suppose, but DD eats it by the bucket load as it is.

The curry powder one is very coronation chicken, isn't it!

I will have to try some of the above - thank you!

blush wasn't around for the coronation, but DH was!

I find I still use recipes from the eighties when I first got into cooking - starter made with curry powder, mayo, prawns and apple served on a poppadum!!!
