What is a Breakfast Salad?

When I first established a realistic goal to eat more vegetables, I switched up my breakfast routine and added a salad to the meal. Breakfast doesn’t have to be loaded with sugar and piled high with pancakes, waffles, and French toast.

Breakfast is simply the meal you eat in the morning and it can be anything. In fact, the meaning of breakfast is to “break the fast.” It’s the meal that breaks the fast from the previous/night day.

In order for me to meet my veggies goal and for it to be realistic I added salads to my morning routine because that way, if anything comes up throughout the day, that throws off my routine (the need to order takeout because I’m too tired to cook, last minute dinner plans, etc), I’ve already accomplished most of the goal with the first meal.

This mindset is also what I apply to my morning workouts. It’s always best for me to get it done first thing and out of the way.

What Type of Salad Dressing to Use

This salad is versatile and any dressing you like will work. I like to pair it with the Dreamy Italian Dressing from Primal Kitchen. The flavor pairs wonderfully with the bacon and strawberries. You can grab it here and use the discount code STAYSNATCHED to save 15%.

The dressing is made with avocado, organic red wine vinegar, and a host of Italian spices like basil, black pepper, garlic, and oregano. It’s also Keto Certified, Paleo Friendly and Whole30 Approved®.

How to Make the Bacon

I love to make it using my Air Fryer Bacon recipe. It’s crispy, crunchy, and ready in minutes!

How to Make the Eggs

I like to use my Air Fryer Eggs or Instant Pot Boiled Eggs recipes.

How to Make Salad Ahead of Time

Greens and produce will become bad due to moisture. If you want to keep your produce alive and crisp you will need to make sure it’s fully dried, not damp and stored in an air-tight container. These mason jars work great.

Always store your dressings separate from the produce. These portable salad dressing containers work great.

I finally started making breakfast salads. Posting my review so that we will get more salad recipes! I like to eat salads but I don’t like to make them. At home I can never seem to make a restaurant-style salad on my own if you know what I mean. I saw Brandi posting this daily and thought ok I’m going to try this one. I was hesitant because to be honest I like breakfast with breakfast-type foods. However as usual Brandi didn’t disappoint. This salad has a breakfast taste to it. The easiest part was prepping enough ingredients so that I could easily make it for a few days in a row. My mornings are busy so having a great breakfast that fuels me is essential. If you’re hesitant just give it a try—then come write your review. Thanks for a great recipe!

Love this recipe and the concept of having salad for breakfast! I fried an egg (bc I didn't have enough time to boil an egg this morning) and used Green Goddess dressing (bc I couldn't find Dreamy Italian at my grocery store) and this salad was BOMB! This recipe is quick, easy, and delish! Thanks Brandi!
