Sick and tired of the same breakfast dishes? This Breakfast Salad with Sausage is a hearty low carb and Whole30 friendly dish that will keep you full all morning.
If you have ever done a Whole30, you know that after about one week you never want to see another scrambled egg again. That's not to say you are completely off eggs - just that it is time to mix things up and this Whole30 Breakfast Salad is the perfect recipe to do just that. It's also Paleo and low carb. To be honest, I doubted just how delicious this salad could be - but it is seriously amazing. Sausage, hard boiled eggs, butternut squash, mushrooms, and avocado with just the right amount of lemon juice and cilantro to cut the richness.
For those making it ahead of time, I recommend adding the cherry tomatoes, avocado, cilantro, and lemon juice right before serving. This keeps everything bright and fresh. You can also substitute ground chicken, sliced grilled chicken, ground beef, or sliced steak for the sausage.
