5 Easy Vegan Salads to Pack for Lunch

No boring greens here! Check out these loaded lunchtime lettuce bowls and tasty dressings.

Are you back in the office, building school lunches, or gearing up for a savvy trip? Bringing your midday meals from home can reduce time, decrease food waste, and save money! But what to pack? If microwaves are out of the question and minimal prep is the name of the game, plant-based salads FTW! Although, we aren’t putting together any boring greens over here. In fact, we’re working with flavorful ingredients and crave-worthy dressings. If you want in on tasty, plant-based lettuce bowls, check out our list of vegan salads to pack for lunch.

5 Easy Vegan Salads to Pack for Lunch

Buffalo Chickpea: To prepare the Buffalo chickpeas, simply warm canned chickpeas with Buffalo sauce and a touch of vegan butter. To build the salad, start with a base of chopped romaine. Next, add diced red onion, diced celery, and the prepared chickpeas. Top with Non-Dairy Ranch Dressing for a tasty meal.

Veggie Antipasto: Top mixed greens with sliced olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, and red onion. Add in hearts of palm, halved artichokes, and cannellini beans. Drizzle Sundried Tomato & Garlic Vinaigrette atop the vegan salad for a refreshing dish.

Quinoa Caprese: Begin with a bed of greens. Add in cooked, chilled quinoa, freshly torn basil, halved cherry tomatoes, and cubes of vegan mozzarella or tofu. But don’t forget to salt those tomatoes! Finish off the dish with Balsamic with Olive Oil Vinaigrette and freshly cracked black pepper. Lunch is served.

Iceberg Wedge: Start by preparing the vegan bacon and breaking it into bits. Next, assemble the wedge base by cutting a head of iceberg lettuce into two to four sections or wedges. Top the lettuce with the vegan bacon bits, diced tomatoes, diced white onion, and Non-Dairy Ranch Dressing. Oh, you’ll want to pack a knife with this one.

Rustic Kale: First, roast up some cubed sweet potatoes. While those are roasting, grab a bottle of Sundried Tomato & Garlic dressing. Massage your chopped kale with the dressing until it is tender. Then, top the greens with the roasted sweet potatoes, diced sundried tomatoes, sunflower seeds, and sliced green onion.

Organicville Vegan Salad Dressings

While this lunch inspo has us seriously craving greens, no salad is complete without a great-tasting vegan condiment. Obviously, Organicville is the brand for the job. There are so many combinations to recreate with the brand’s Balsamic with Olive Oil Vinaigrette, Non-Dairy Ranch Dressing, and Sundried Tomato & Garlic Vinaigrette. These Organicville vegan salad dressings pack major flavor and sport an impressive nutritional profile. These products are USDA Organic, non-GMO, plant-based, gluten-free, keto-friendly, paleo, and Whole30 approved. But what’s really great about these vegan salad dressings? They have 0g added sugar.

Additionally, the vegan-friendly brand offers a variety of creamy dressings, vinaigrettes, pasta sauces, and condiments to enhance your favorite dishes. Also, many of the vinaigrettes double as a marinade, making it a win-win. We love it for our grilled tofu and roasted vegetables alike. No matter what you’re craving, let Organicville vegan salad dressings, sauces, and condiments be your new flavorful go-to ingredients.

Find this better-for-you brand online and at grocery stores nationwide. Check out more Organicville products and meal inspo on Instagram at @organicville.

Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
