I know what you are thinking, salad for breakfast?!!! Just hear me out on this one. Maple and lemon dressing with a perfect over easy egg on a bed of hearty greens and salty smoky ham. This is a simple salad that I love for breakfast. Well, honestly I eat this Paleo Breakfast Salad with Simple Vinaigrette for lunch and dinner too! It’s got the ideal balance of sweet and savory that I crave when the Fahrenheit rises above 80 degrees.

This is the time of the season that I have an abundance of greens, tomatoes and herbs. I love this simple salad because I can use up my bounty without heating up the kitchen! For this batch I used chard and collard greens, but in the spring I use arugula (or rocket). Any hearty green will be a good foundation for the lemon maple vinaigrette and hot over easy egg.
