That old standby broccoli salad (you know the one, with the bacon and raisins) isn't just for graduation parties and summer picnics anymore. Add some apples, yogurt and pumpkin seeds to make a breakfast worthy update, and you'll have practically have half of your daily servings of vegetables and fruit before your day even begins.
Thanks to Fig to Fork I have a fridge full of tasty treats, including yogurt, broccoli, Pink Lady apples and shallots, so this salad practically made itself.
Want more salad ideas? Over at Called to the Table is a lucha libre inspired version that would be great anytime.
