Breakfast Salad is easy and delicious and will start your day off with lots of vitamins, antioxidants, and fiber. And it’s beautiful, too.
Breakfast salad is one of my favorite dishes in the morning. It’s light and usually fruity. I don’t feel bogged down later but also don’t get the mid-morning hungries. And even these photos I took in the unforgiving, glaring sun show how lovely fruit and greens are naturally. Like the supermodels of produce, it’s hard to take a bad pic of them.
The peonies aren’t bad right now, either.
I make a simple citrus dressing to go with most breakfast salads, although this one is the Best Salad Dressing Ever (Really!) Either would be nice.
Delicious fruit and greens with a simple citrus dressing is a perfect way to start the day.
