Poached Egg on Apple & Dandelion Salad

Breakfast foods are my favourites. Often, when I'm cooking for myself, I make some version of the recipe below. It's breakfasty, but I like eggs any time of day. This particular egg recipe is packed with local super-foods.  Read more about why I choose these ingredients here


  • 1 apple
  • 1 bunch dandelion greens
  • 1 bunch spinach
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp liquid honey 

Cut the flesh off the apple off the core in 4-5 slices. Lay the apple pieces cut side down and cut into matchstick sized pieces. Wash and dry your greens. In your salad bowl whisk together the oil, vinegar and honey. Poach or soft boil 2 eggs. While your eggs are cooking, toss the salad greens with the dressing and a pinch salt. Add most your apples to the salad and mix in. Then plate your salad and add the rest of the apple pieces scattered on top of the salad. Place your perfect eggs on top of your salad and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Enjoy with a 100% cranberry juice spritzer (1 part cranberry juice to 2 parts sparkling water) for a decadent super powered brunch!
