Oatmeal, step aside. There's something new on the breakfast block. And it's low in carbs, high in protein and will keep you feel energized right up until lunch-time.

Behold: the breakfast salad. When it comes right down to it, how does a breakfast salad really differ from any old salad? While they range in approaches, oftentimes breakfast salads will include greens of some kind, veggies, ham or bacon, and eggs. But then you'll come across Food 52's version (below) that is more of a simple fruit salad. You'll find variations that rely on potatoes, kale or special croutons. Once you get beyond the initial strangeness of eating a bowl of greens in the morning, there's really a whole new world to explore. We invite you in.
