Lunch Made Easy!

One of my favorite lunches is a sandwich and a salad. It's a healthy lunch that is as filling as it is calorie wise.
This is my Ham and Cheese Panini with Baby Greens.

Today I helped my son choose university classes so I prepared this for our power lunch together!

Ham and Cheese Paninis
2 mini focaccia loaves
6 slices black forest ham
4 large slices monterey jack cheese
olive oil
salt and pepper
oregano, dried

1. Cut the focaccia loaves in half horizontally.
2. Drizzle olive oil over the insides of each piece for moisture.
3. Sprinkle each half with salt, pepper and oregano.
4. Place 3 pieces of ham folded over onto the two bottom pieces and top with two slices of cheese.
5. Fold the top half of the focaccia loaves onto the bottoms and place in a panini grill until cheese has melted.

Baby Greens with Balsamic Vinegrette
2 cups prepared baby greens
2 T dried cranberries
4 T olive oil
2 T balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

1. In a medium sized bowl, combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper and stir.
2. Add greens and cranberries and toss.
