Hey Big Tuna, your lunch deserves one of these recipes.

1. Grilled Fig Sandwiches with Pistachio Pesto and Balsamic-Grilled Onions


This sandwich is an unbelievably tasty combination of warm crusty bread, savoury pistachio pesto, rich caramelized onion, peppery arugula, and sweet grilled figs.

2. The Perfect Kale Salad


Get ready for baby kale, roasted yams, ancient grains, honeycrisp apple and crispy squash chips topped with toasted pumpkin seed dressing.
