I am sure this has been posted a gazillion times, but i am reposting because maybe there are some new ideas and I am too lazy to search the past, lol. Throw some ideas at me for some easy, no cook dinners. Right now I am leaning on a chicken ceaser salad, But I am entertaining some other ideas if you got em. Thanks...
:p

Lots of cold salads, some starting with couscous which will rehydrate just fine with cold water.  Start by looking at these 2 sites, by members of this community and also very active with the Long Distance crowd.  

For me, I like tuna salad with crackers or sandwich thins.  Or, just a mix of munchables I carry for snacks and lunches.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches  :D

Something that I like is a cheese tortilla. At home: take a tortilla, put your favorite cheese on it, top it with another tortilla, and zap in the microwave until the cheese melts. Or you can heat it up in a skillet. When it cools, cut it up, sort of like a quesadilla. Wrap it up and take it with you. If you can find packets of salsa (Taco Bell or somewhere), put the salsa on the cheesy tortilla when you are ready to eat it.

I don't like cooking when I am backpacking. I try to keep the food stuff simple and easy, and I sure don't want to spend my time cleaning up dirty pots.

Packit Gormet has some delicious food, though, and if I want to take along something quick and easy, I LOVE their Black Bean and Corn Salad. It can be eaten hot or cold. This stuff is good!

Lot of good choices. As mentioned couscous hydrates quickly because of its small size, but also like black bean, other mixes if willing to wait a little longer. Just have them in a zip lock baggie. Extra long spoons (GSI) help keep your fingers clean when dipping for the food.

Also, "Just Veggies" are fab. See

Dried tomatoes are a personal fav, their texture and chewiness a healthy replacement for my (ex) licorice cravings.

One other trail treat: raw ginger.

For first night or two I like string cheese (keep in center of pack, away from direct sunlight), "mini bon bon" cheeses (wax covered small cheeses) and bagels.

Coffee? Caffine pills do the trick.

I like instant hummus (rehydrates fine with cold water) on a wrap or flat bread with some crumbled feta and maybe some summer sausage or salmon from a foil pouch.
