Fried Egg Green Salad w/ Warm Croutons

It’s that time of year that really start to crave salads. I am pretty sure it is NOT because the weather has been sunny, because we haven’t had much of that problem  this year (uuggh!).  I have made this full-meal salad loads of times.  I love the the way all the soft molten yolk disperses through the greens and homemade croutons, it is a fabulous crunchy/smooth texture combination.  The ingredients in this salad are so simple, and the meal comes together in a flash!  Sometimes I just boil the eggs too instead of frying, whatever mood suits yo is just fine!  The homemade croutons are fabulous, so don;t even THINK of short-cutting with store-bought ones… wouldn’t come even CLOSE to flavor and texture of these!  I usually plan 2 eggs and one slice of bread per person.  I am sure you can guess what the kids have on this night?  Eggs!  They think they are getting breakfast for dinner, and that is ALWAYS a a good thing in their eyes!

  1. Hi Tessa, There's something about a rich runny yolk on a fresh green salad that makes me so happy. I've been craving salads a lot lately. It must be a reaction to all the gray weather we get on the West Coast. This looks so yummy and homemade croutons probably really shine in this simple yet delicious meal.

    I'm hosting Whole Food Wednesdays at beyond the peel. I hope you'll come join us!
