I’m on a bit of a salad kick lately.

I’m not really sure why but I’m not going to question my body when it’s craving green vegetables. Of course, I always find a way to unhealthify (I’m pretty sure that is not a word) my salads and added a little bacon and cheese. 

The fried egg on top was just the icing on the cake.

Well, the icing on the salad. You get it. 

I had never had the egg/salad combo before and I can guarantee you it’s amazing.

I’m pretty sure a fried egg on top of almost anything is amazing.

Please don’t argue with me. I will always think I’m right.

Since this was my lunch, and I’m a bit of a pig, I basically combined two salads to make my meal.

That is why you will see two eggs in my bowl. I tried to make them beautiful and centered but that didn’t really work so well.

Either way, it still tasted great.

This mixed green salad with bacon, goat cheese, and fried egg is a lovely protein packed salad. It's great for lunch or dinner!

Also, these greens are from our first CSA bag.

They were super fresh and delicious. We also got a bunch of other greens and some Japanese turnips.

Be on the lookout for other CSA bag inspired recipes later this week and throughout the whole summer!

Funny, I was just at a pub on Monday where someone's burger was served with a fried egg on top. Common elsewhere, but I recent phenomenon in North America.
