(Main recipe only – doesn’t include extras or drink)



  • 2 thick slices of wholemeal bread
  • 2 tbsp medium-fat soft cheese
  • 3cm piece of cucumber, finely chopped
  • 20g celery (about ⅔ of a stick), finely chopped
  • Small wedge of lettuce, to give 2 tbsp when shredded
  • Pinch of black pepper or paprika, optional


  • Complete your lunchbox with:
  • An apple
  • Fruit teacake
  • Small bottle of water



1 Spread both slices of bread with the cheese.

Spreading the cheese on both slices of the bread – and patting the salad dry – helps prevent a soggy sandwich!

2 Pat the salad dry and use to fill the sandwich, sprinkling with pepper or paprika if using.

Try other salad vegetables, or even some pineapple.
