It’s no secret that I eat a LOT of salads. Actually, I will have a salad for breakfast quite often and this one with grapefruit and avocado is perfect.
The peppery arugula with grapefruit and avocado, both breakfast staples, is great for breakfast or any time of the day. My daughter thought this was one of the best salads I’ve ever made, and I will have to agree with her- haha It not only tastes great, just look at those colors, that certainly brightens my day.
Do you ever eat salads for breakfast? Let me know if you try this one, I’d love to hear what you think!
