The best brunch salad


Tis’ the season for brunches! The salad sets the course for a brunch – much like an invitation for a party – so make it count, make it the best.

For the best brunch salad: start with spicy wild arugula, add in beans, cilantro, fresh basil, tomato, pepper, and Parmesan cheese crisps. The secret for making a brunch salad truly the best is to add a few shavings of chocolate and then top with balsamic vinegar. The richness of the chocolate/balsamic combo paired with the spicy ingredients makes a salad friends will not soon forget.

Making the salad festive for spring  is easy with homemade bunny and egg cheese crisps. To make them, bake Parmesan cheese in metal cookie cutters at 375 for 5-10 minutes. Pull out the crisps when the cheese turns a golden brown and let cool before removing from the baking sheet.

It’s Time for Springtime. Set your table pretty this spring with the new Threshold collection – I love every piece of it.

    I would have never thought to add chocolate to a salad but this sounds delicious! The oil / vinegar containers are too cute!
