My middle child won’t eat anything that resembles salad or is green so I have to hide them in veggie smoothies. My youngest though, he begs for this salad for an after school snack! Yay for a child that actually asks for a healthy salad!
Eating salad for breakfast.
I’m guessing you’ve had fruit salad for breakfast before, but if you haven’t ever tried a vegetable salad for breakfast you’re missing out! It’s the perfect way to get a few servings of veggies in before you really even start your day.
If you just aren’t into eating salad for breakfast you can always serve this for brunch, lunch, or dinner. I’ve served it alongside a hamburger patty for dinner before and it seriously hit the spot!
What to serve with breakfast salad.
I don’t know about you, but after the holidays are behind us, I start craving vegetables, salads, and pretty much anything else healthy. But, then again I have a serious sweet tooth and know myself well enough to know I’m not going to survive without at least some sweets! My meal just isn’t complete without sweet and savory and I’m not going to beat myself up over it!
Besides satisfying my cravings, I always feel like salads need to be served with some kind of bread. My mantra when it comes to eating healthy is moderation. That’s why I love serving this salad with Rhodes AnyTime® Cinnamon Rolls! All you have to do is stick them in the oven and frost them!
Rhodes Bake N’ Serve has AnyTime® rolls in these flavors Orange Rolls, Caramel Rolls, Cinnamon Rolls with six rolls in an aluminum pan. That means no dishes, no rising, no remembering to thaw them. Or you can buy AnyTime® Cinnamon Rolls in a bag which makes it easy to make as many or few rolls as you’d like! These rolls are so fluffy and light and really couldn’t be easier.
Savory salad and sweet cinnamon rolls feel an awful lot like a balanced morning to me!
