One of my favorite ways to get in real food is to make crazy salads. This Sunshine Salad is one of my favorites to make. It's so easy and the egg gives you great protein. Makes a lovely brunch meal on the weekends.

Sunshine Salad

  • Mixed Greens
  • Naval oranges
  • Pine Nuts
  • Braggberry Dressing (I'm obsessed)
  • Fried Egg
  • Grated Robusto cheese

    Place ingredients in a bowl as listed and enjoy!

    I think it's so fun to experiment with salads. They tell pregnant ladies to stay away from raw, soft cheese to avoid contracting Listeria. Most cheese in the United States is pasteurized but there is plenty of raw cheese available (which I normally prefer) so make sure to check the label.

    Here are some really amazing salad combinations:

  • Strawberries, goat cheese, almonds, Braggberry dressing
  • Apples, blue cheese, walnuts, vinegarette
  • Pears, parmesan or robusto, walnuts, olive oil, s + p
  • Fried egg, naval orange, robusto cheese, Braggberry dressing
  • Dried cranberries, almonds, naval oranges, gorgonzola cheese, rasberry vinegarette
  • Fried egg, walnuts, golden raisins, goat cheese, balsamic vinegarette

    What are your salad topping go tos? I would love to add some more to the rotation!


    1. I could live on a salads with fried eggs on them. Unfortunately the hubs is more a meat and three kind of guy. This is still one if my favorite lunches though!

      1. listen, i NEVER get to eat things like this for dinner. i am in your same boat. sam doesn't like salads or eggs really for that matter.

    2. i am now going to make a fried egg. like right now.

    3. "Put a fried egg on it" needs a meme. That's not to say I'm not obsessed with throwing them on everything myself. I'm currently loving Smitten Kitchen's bacon and blue cheese salad sandwich (minus the bread). It's not exactly "healthy" but it is so satisfying. Thank you for some great ideas! I'm always looking for a nice salad combination and these all sound amazing. Oh! Another great source for healthy salads is Table Tonic. Louise makes incredibly easy, healthy food that's so inspiring. Her Instagram is great, too. xo

      1. now I'm hungry! thanks for the new reading and that smitten kitchen recipe sounds like just my jam!

    4. Fried egg and oranges on a salad?? Very interesting. I love putting raisins in my salad for just a bite of sweetness. I also love a good steak salad with blue cheese crumbles.

    5. you must have read my mind. i was just looking for some fresh ideas for salads as i try to lose the baby weight:-)
