I find that breakfast is the meal with dietary restrictions that I can get the most bored with. I am always trying to discover new recipes for it and recently discovered the breakfast salad. I actually find that I really just enjoy leftover dinner most of the time so that is probably why I enjoy this salad so much.
This salad is a super refreshing breakfast salad that is great on its own or also a great side to a larger brunch. It utilizes a lot of seasonal produce and is super refreshing for the warmer months. You can easily switch out your favorite greens and favorite produce.

Yes, yes, yes to breakfast salads!! I almost always have something green, but leafy greens – fresh or sauteed – are my favorite, especially with an egg on top!
Absolutely! Nothing better than an egg cooked in ghee then put on top of a mess of salad greens (perhaps with a little ham or bacon or avocado) and then having the yolk broken out upon the greens.

Love the idea of a breakfast salad. Looks delicious and another great way to get greens in in the morning. I love green smoothies because I can pack in the greens without even thinking about it– but they do get old!
This looks delicious! I love the idea of a breakfast salad, and I love that you added dill! Can’t wait to make this at home. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
