This Easy Fried Egg Salad Is A Great For Diets

How’s that New Year’s resolution thing going? Is it a resolution that involves a diet?  It’s only day two – it’s okay if you haven’t jumped on that bandwagon just yet.

Judging by what’s been pinned from my blog this week, everyone is on a diet. Things like my Orzo Salad and Zucchini and Tomato Bake have been getting a lot of pin-love.

Recently one of my readers wrote me an email asking if I had ever tried a salad. She meant it in the sincerest way possible. She said she was trying to lose weight, that was her resolution for the new year, but could not get herself to eat a salad.

Me and salads, you ask!? That’s like Cheech and Chong. Joanie and Chachi. Sonny and Brenda!

If any of my close friends are reading this post, please chime in. If there is a person that eats more salads than moi, I would like to meet them. I am a walking Salad Bar. I don’t go a day without having a salad.

How To Make The Best Healthy Salad

The trick to salads? Don’t eat them plain. Those leaves will only be fun for like a minute. You need to dress that thing up with a bit of this, a whole lotta that, and a bag of nuts. And an egg! Don’t forget the egg. You need some protein to add some pizzazz to all that jazz. M’kay?

What Type Of Dressing Goes With This Fried Egg Salad?

Watch out for those dressings, though. Those can kill any diet. Do what I do; make your own. My go to dressing is a simple drizzle of vinegar and oil. If you want to get fancy, grab some extra virgin olive oil, lemons, salt and pepper. Whisk it all together and pour two or three tablespoons over that Fried Egg Salad. Boom! Lunch is served.
