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 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.
