Are yours kids sweet snackers or savory snackers? Do they reach for fruit and cookies, or nuts and chips? One thing that my kids definitely inherited from me is their sweet tooth – they can never turn down a piece of chocolate! But they also love their salty crackers with edamame hummus.
This easy pineapple salsa is the best of both worlds! Sweet, juicy pineapple mixed with savory vegetables and a hint of spice from chili powder – it’s a snack you’ll never get tired of eating. It’s great with chips as an afternoon snack, packed in a lunch box or as a topping for grilled chicken or tacos!

The 5 ideas to use Egg Salad include:
Classic Egg Salad Sandwich with Bacon
Use your favorite bread for this sandwich, add some lettuce on each side of the bread, this helps to keep your bread from getting soggy in the lunchbox, and top with two or three scoops of egg salad. If you love bacon like my kids do, adding two slices of bacon makes this sandwich the lunch version of bacon and eggs.
Celery Logs with Egg Salad & Olives
These celery logs are a fun crunchy way to eat egg salad. You can make these as a full lunch or even as a snack after school. Fill some celery sticks with egg salad and place a few sliced olives on top! It’s that simple. Add some fruit and extra veggies on the side and another lunch is complete.
Avocado Stuffed with Egg Salad
This Avocado Stuffed with Egg Salad is one of my husband’s favorite lunches to bring to the office. It is full of protein and healthy fats, which help hold him over through the day. The best part, you can change this one idea up as well, just change the toppings, a little creole seasoning, tomatoes, olives or even some crumbled bacon.
Tomatoes Stuffed with Egg Salad
