I could eat salad everyday and this Breakfast Salad is no exception. This is a rich, hearty salad which is just perfect for lunch or a light dinner as well.
The salad with a poached egg and a slice or two of toast and you will be set for brunch, and by now, if you have been following With A Blast a while, you should know we love our weekend brunches.
It also looks fabulous and your family or guests will definitely be surprised to find a salad on the breakfast or brunch table.
I normally have one or two favorite ingredients in a salad, but this Breakfast Salad just about covers all my favorites in one.
We often have the salad as a light dinner as well, especially with the record breaking heatwaves we have been experiencing in Gauteng lately. A crusty roll on the side and we are one happy family !
