Dishes best served cold?
My office doesn't have a kitchenette but I'd like to bring my lunch. Any suggestions beyond the basic sandwich/ salad? Any meal you've had at room tempereature that's been tasty?
So far I've only had fresh pesto with fresh hand made pasta that I brought and ate at room termp. that was just as good as eating warm.
Hummus and Pita
Quiche or Frittata
Leftovers - Pizza or Chinese
Couscous Salad or Barley and Bean Salads
Antipasto Platter or Charcuterie Plate
Yogurt Parfait w/ Fruit and Fiber Cereal or Granola if you prefer
I like poached salmon and poached chicken served cooled/room temperature. Roast chicken and fried chicken are also good cold. You could also make a steak salad with a rice wine vinaigrette.
Soba noodles with dipping sauce -- bring the sauce separately or it will make the noodles very soggy. I learned the hard way.
Jap chae -- Korean vermicelli noodles with meats/seafood/veggies
Stuffed grape leaves
Have you thought about getting a thermos? I love Mr. and Ms. Bento.
