15 Delicious Breakfast Salads You Need to Try
As someone who generally prefers savory things to sweet, I’m always looking for new and exciting ways to squeeze vegetables into breakfast. So when breakfast salads started popping up on my social feeds, I was intrigued.
Right now you might be thinking, Salad for breakfast—really? Yes, really! Registered dietitians often recommend adding veggies to your breakfast to ensure you meet the USDA’s recommended daily 21/2-cup quota, but since most fast and easy breakfasts are things like oatmeal and toast, that can sometimes be challenging. Unless you want to eat veggie scrambles every day, you need another veg-centric breakfast option to keep you on your toes.
And that’s where these breakfast salads come in. Filled with leafy greens, heartier veggies like potatoes and peas, and breakfast staples like fried eggs and bacon, they’ll satisfy your morning cravings and get you at least a full serving of vegetables (likely more) before noon. Plus, lots of fiber, complex carbs, and protein will keep you satiated and energized at least until lunchtime. Before you know it, you’ll wonder why you ever thought the idea of a breakfast salad was weird.
