Smoked Salmon Breakfast Salad

I like to look at breakfast the same way I look at all my meals; anything goes as long as I eat nutrient-dense, delicious foods. I love having salads for breakfast in the summer because it's an easy way to get veggies in along with protein and healthy fats. I added fried eggs to this salad because who doesn't love a fried egg? Plus, it makes the salad feel more like breakfast for those who struggle with not eating typical breakfast foods.

I've eaten this salad multiple times since creating it. The dressing isn't overpowering and lets the flavors of the salad shine through.

Smoked Salmon Breakfast Salad

Salads are one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast, and this one is amazing. It's paleo and gluten-free.



  • 4 C arugula
  • 14-18 cucumber slices (about 1/4th of an English cucumber)
  • 1/2 C blueberries
  • 1 avocado
  • 4oz smoked salmon
  • 2 eggs
  • everything bagel seasoning (optional)
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 T honey
  • 1/2 C avocado oil (plus a little more for frying the eggs)
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 4 lg fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  1. To make the dressing add the lemon juice, honey, avocado oil, Dijon mustard, fresh basil, sea salt, pepper, coconut aminos, and white wine vinegar to a high-speed blender or jar wide enough to fit an emersion blender.
  2. Blend the dressing for about 1 minute. It should be thoroughly combined, and no lumps should remain. Set the dressing aside.
  3. Assemble the salads by dividing the arugula into two bowls. Evenly distribute the cucumbers, blueberries, and smoked salmon between the two bowls.
  4. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Slice each avocado in half and add to each bowl.
  5. Fry the eggs to your desired doneness; I like a runny yolk, and add an egg to each salad.
  6. Drizzle the salads with the dressing, sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning, and serve.
