Crispy Bacon and Egg Salad


Hello everyone, as the warmer weather is fast approaching my latest recipe is for a Crispy Bacon and Egg Salad. This salad can be prepped ahead if you are having a busy day or want to enjoy it on the go. Just make sure you keep the dressing in a separate little pot and add it to your salad when you are ready to eat it.

Like many people, I’ve been working at home now for a year and the idea of lunch on the go is just a distant memory. I do find interesting lunch ideas more difficult to think up than breakfast or dinner – not sure why.
