Healthy Breakfast Series #3: Breakfast Salad

There are times when you eat at a restaurant and you think to yourself “I could totally make this at home.” That thought occurred to Ash and I while we were eating brunch one lovely Sunday morning so we set ourselves the challenge.

I prepped the salad with avocado while Ash made soft boiled eggs (his folded eggs are the absolute best), we finished it off with some toasted bread and delicate slices of smoked salmon.

For early mornings, I suggest making this salad the night before and boiling (or poaching if you have the skills) the eggs in the morning.

Serves 2

2 handfuls of rocket leaves
1 Avocado, cut into small pieces
1 handful of cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

2-4 eggs, soft boiled (personal preference)
I small packet of smoked salmon
2-4 pieces of toast or fresh bread

1. Combine the salad ingredients in a bowl and toss gently
2. Serve with soft boiled eggs on toast and smoked salmon on the side

I hope you enjoy this simple summery salad!
