A Note From Hetty McKinnon

The movement to turn your desk into a makeshift dining table begins right here. For those who tend to lunch at their desk, this is an exciting chance to leave leftovers behind, renounce soggy sandwiches and brighten up bland leafy salads. Let’s pack our lunch boxes with nourishing, flavor-packed, seasonally-inspired meals, loaded with spices, greenmarket finds, local produce and daring dressings. I hope you will find inspiration here that will take your desk dining from sad to happy!

A Note From Hetty McKinnon

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite ingredients to spiralize, especially for salads. All of the other ingredients - and this to-die-for miso dressing! - get tangled together into deliciousness.

Walnut And Cranberry Brussels Sprouts Salad

I’m a newly converted fan of Brussels sprouts after disliking them for a majority of my life. And I think there are many out there like myself. This salad is so quick and easy to make (especially if you have a food processor) and is packed with flavor from real, clean ingredients. It's so delicious and made with nutritious brussels sprouts, sliced apples, walnuts, cranberries, and a light homemade dressing.
