A busy schedule shouldn't keep you and your family from eating healthy and delicious meals together. These three simple weeknight dinners are easy to prepare and allow you to have dinner on the table in under half an hour. 

Three Recipes You Can Depend on After a Busy Day

Pesto Salmon With Quinoa. Preheat the oven to 425. Coat one fillet per serving with olive oil and place on a foil-lined baking sheet skin-side down. Place in the oven and bake for 12-13 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the quinoa according to instructions on the package. When the salmon is finished, put a bed of quinoa on the plate and place the salmon on top. Spread a tablespoon of pesto on top of the salmon and serve.

Schnitzel With Arugula Salad. Start with one boneless pork chop per serving pounded to 1/4 inch thick. Fill one wide and shallow bowl with seasoned bread crumbs and another with a raw egg mixed with a few dashes of water. Coat each pounded pork chop with the egg mixture, and then coat the bread crumbs. Set aside. Heat a pan with a thin layer of oil until shimmering. Shallow fry the breaded pork chop for 90 seconds per side. Remove from the heat and blot dry. Dress the arugula with vinaigrette and plate with the schnitzel. Finish with fresh lemon juice over the top of the pork. 

Chickpea Salad. Chop a seeded cucumber, one red bell pepper, half a red onion, and a half cup of Kalamata olives and place in a large bowl. Add two 15 oz. cans of chickpeas and a half cup of lemon-vinaigrette dressing. Toss to combine. Divide into serving bowls and top with crumbled feta cheese.
