By Liliana Moyano for Shine LatinaAvocado-breakfast saladMy sister Marcela just came back from spending a summer in Spain, and during her trip she discovered amazing recipes that she couldn't wait to try at home.
At last Sunday's family brunch, Marcela and I put together a delicious and easy breakfast salad inspired by Spaniards love of including eggs in every meal (ever heard of a Spanish omelet?). This recipe is perfect for making overnight, and then take to work the next day. The ingredients are simple: avocado, boiled eggs, bacon, and asparagus.
To maintain the freshness of the ingredients, we stored the final product in glass containers. I usually store all my leftovers in glass containers, which not only preserves the food better, but it's also more sanitary and easier to clean. I stored the breakfast salad in the fridge, and the next day I drizzled it with olive oil and sea salt crystals. The sea salt seals all the flavors, and adds a delicious and crunchy kick to this flavorful dish. Vamos a desayunar!
