Greek Salad Scramble

IMG_3030

This is one of those recipes that was an unplanned, creative surprise.  When the weather gets warmer, I am a big salad eater, I love to stock my fridge with salad essentials:  bright greens, flavorful herbs, fresh veggies, and bold cheese.  This past week was stocked with the perfect ingredients for a Greek salad, however a major foodie dilemma arose.  It was restaurant week in New Haven.  I had to decide between sampling meals from some of the city’s coveted restaurants and noshing on Greek salads all week long.  With a little creativity I turned my spring time go-to dinner into a colorful, fresh breakfast.
