    It loos good. And it sounds good except for the egg. I just can’t stand poached eggs, actually most eggs, but I love the berries.

    I’m used to hard boiled eggs in salads, so this is definitely a good change from that. I love a good breakfast, especially when the ingredients are light and not so filling! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    Now that is one salad I’d consume immediately. Picture was so beautiful it’s a sin to eat it but a bigger one to let it go to waste.
