September is Back to School Month, and as your kids get smarter, so should your choices about what to put in their lunch boxes or on the dinner table. To start with, remember that Nino’s has ALL the yogurts, all the energy bars and all the latest probiotic smoothies, waters and juices that your kids love.
Stop in and fuel up your kids for this upcoming school year. To make things easier, here’s a couple of easy to make recipes to fill up those lunch boxes:
Chicken Caesar Wrap
There are two ways you can go about this recipe; one is below, and the other is to simply pick up one of Nino’s Small Entrée Grilled Chicken Caesar Salads in our Produce Department refrigerator and turn it into a wrap stuffer. Everything you need is right in the salad container, including the dressing and the Parmesan Cheese. (Note: The Cardini’s Dressing in our Entrée Salads is not fat-free). Or you can use sliced lunch meat as described below with fat-free dressing:
4 oz Boar’s Head “Classic” Low Sodium Chicken
½ Cup Shredded Romaine Lettuce
¼ Cup Diced Roma Tomato
2 tsp Shredded Parmesan Cheese
2 TBSP Cardini’s brand Fat-Free Caesar Dressing
Grilled Portobello With Roasted Vegetables & Muenster Cheese
Marinate Portobello cap in teriyaki and olive oil, and then grill or roast at 400 F until tender. Chill and leave whole. Spread both sides of the open Arnold’s Sandwich Thin bun with Olivio spread and layer with Portobello cap filled with chopped roasted vegetables, sliced tomato and Muenster cheese (Topping with shredded lettuce is optional.).
1 Arnold’s Sandwich Thin (Bun)
1 Large Portobello Mushroom Cap
2 TBSP Teriyaki Sauce
1 TBSP Olive Oil
1 TBSP Olivio Spread
½ Cup Nino’s Roasted Seasonal Vegetables (from our Gourmet to Go Counter)
½ Roma Tomato, Thinly Sliced
1 Slice Marla brand Low-Fat Muenster Cheese
Beef Fajita Wrap
