Ham and Egg Salad #FoodieExtravaganza

Salads for brunch are very easy with ham,  egg and cheese topped with a creamy homemade Thousand Island dressing.

My recipe of the day is for Ham and Egg Salad with a sprinkling  of goat  cheese and something like shelled edamame, peas or butter beans, topped with my homemade Thousand Island dressing (click the separate link for that recipe).

This is all for Foodie Extravaganza, which we post on once a month on various topics aligned with  special food days,  food holidays  or seasonal  foods. For April, we are posting on eggs.

The Perfect Brunch Salad

This  particular salad I love having as a brunch  salad if I am leaning slightly toward luncheon items, such as quiche or savory crepes. The combination of ham, eggs, and goat cheese go well  even with something like an omelet.

So if you are wondering what kind of salad to make on weekend mornings, this could be the salad for you. Of course it is fairly simple, and also uses my Thousand Island recipe  made from scratch. I  like making my own dressings and this one I am pretty  particular about since I am picky with this type of dressing. Hopefully it pleases you as well.

I’ve also included  some links for other salads I  like using my homemade dressings. They are easy enough to  make and keep in the fridge in a small canning jar.
