Crunch in Your Lunch: Taking Pickles Back to School

Boy, did the past three months fly by! Afternoons of lazing by the pool, cool nights and cold drinks on the porch, and weekends spent chowing down at neighborhood barbecues. We’ve enjoyed every last minute of summer, but we won’t deny that we’re a little excited to get the kids back to school! To make sure lunches are fun as the school year kicks off, we’re packing a little extra crunch. Take a look at some of our favorite back to school recipes below.


Ham, Cheese & Pickle Kabobs


We love this cute sandwich kabob idea from Dinner is Ready! Skewers are fun to eat at any age, and take no time to prepare. Just pack a few in a resealable container and you’re good to go!


Pickle Pinwheels


Here’s another super simple recipe from The Kitchen Whisperer. We love the idea of making these the night before so they’re ready to go in the morning.


Dill Pickle Dip with Honey and Sour Cream


Have a kid that loves ranch with everything? Try packing a bit of this delicious dip with carrot or celery sticks. Sweet, tart and tangy, this recipe from What’s That Smell? is sure to get them to eat their veggies.


Farm Fresh Egg Salad with Garlic Pickles on Brioche

Creamy Egg Salad

We can’t forget this lunchtime classic! Our #FarmtoJar friend Claire from The Kitchy Kitchen has perfected the quintessential egg salad recipe. Give kids the option to have a little fun with their lunch by packing the egg salad as a dip served with slices of toasted bread—it’ll also prevent the bread from getting soggy!
