Summer Salads...Featuring Weekend Brunch Salad #healthy2022 #healthyanddelish #summereats #saladdays

Summer is in full swing! For me? That means eating more fresh produce and salads. Today, I'm sharing one of my favorite salad creations that's a perfect Summer brunch...or light lunch. My Weekend Brunch Salad includes some of my favorite breakfast items...presented in a main dish salad form. The taste is familiar...but new and refreshing. It's also filling without leaving you feeling stuffed! The fact that it's lower in fat and carbs is a healthy bonus.

Weekend Brunch Salad
a Weekend Gourmet Original
Ingredients (makes ONE salad...but easily doubled):
  • 1.5 cups salad greens
  • 1/4 cup grape tomatoes halved or roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup peeled, chopped cucumber
  • 1/8 cup thinly sliced green onion
  • 1/4 cup shredded 2% mozzarella cheese
  • 2 slices cooked turkey bacon, chopped in bite-size pieces
  • 2 soft boiled eggs, cut in bite-sized pieces
  • 2 TBS healthy Ranch dressing [NOTE: I use Walden Farms Ranch]
Step 1: Cook the turkey bacon in a non-stick skillet and chop. Boil the eggs for 4 minutes, cool in cold water, peel, and chop.

Step 2: Add the salad greens to a shallow bowl. Top with the tomatoes, cucumber, and green onions. Toss the veggies around to combine. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the salad greens. Arrange the chopped eggs and turkey bacon on top of the salad. Finally, drizzle the Ranch dressing on top. That's it! This salad is ready to eat in less than 30 minutes -- no oven required!

I hope you'll give my fun salad recipe a try! Everyone I've shared a picture with has begged me for the I decided to share it here with all of you. Happy...and healthy...eating!
