Breakfast Salad Recipe

Breakfast Salad dates back to ancient times when societies began to cultivate crops for consumption. In ancient Rome, breakfast was considered an important meal, and salads were commonly consumed to start the day. This tradition has since evolved and spread to various cultures around the world.

Fun Fact: Did you know that in some Middle Eastern countries, it is common to eat a salad for breakfast? The traditional Middle Eastern breakfast salad, known as "Fattoush," is similar to the Breakfast Salad we will be making today.

Now, let's dive into the recipe for this refreshing and nutritious Breakfast Salad.

Breakfast Salad Recipe:

Ingredients:
- 2 tomatoes
- 1 cucumber
- 1 tablespoonful of oil
- 1 spring onion
- Half a lettuce
- 2 tablespoonsful of vinegar

Instructions:

1. Begin by scalding the tomatoes. This can be done by placing them in boiling water for a few seconds until their skin starts to crack. Then, immediately transfer them to a bowl of cold water or ice to cool. This process makes it easier to remove the skin later.

2. Once the tomatoes are cooled, peel off the skin. Then, cut them into small, bite-sized pieces, similar to how you would cut an orange.

3. Peel the cucumber and cut it into very thin slices. It is recommended to use a mandoline or a sharp knife for this step to achieve thin and even slices.

4. Mince the spring onion into fine pieces.

5. In a mixing bowl, combine the tomatoes, cucumber slices, and minced spring onion. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.

6. Drizzle the tablespoonful of oil and two tablespoonsful of vinegar over the mixture. The oil adds richness and the vinegar adds acidity, balancing the flavors of the salad.

7. Shred the lettuce into small pieces and place it on top of the mixture.

8. Gently toss the ingredients together until they are well combined, ensuring that the oil and vinegar coat all the vegetables evenly.

9. Your Breakfast Salad is now ready to serve! Transfer it to a serving dish or individual plates.

Enjoy this refreshing and healthy Breakfast Salad to kickstart your day with a burst of flavors and nutrients.
