Salads: The Ultimate Spring Food


Spring has finally arrived and we’re all stoked! Spring is a time of new beginnings, healthy thinking and the end of hibernating in our homes. It’s the time of flowers, fruit, greens, marathons, BBQs and so much more. Typically, the health nut in us starts craving for more fresh food during this time of the year and we have just the right line-up for such a thing.

For instance, if you’re in the mood for something that reminds you of the soft sea breeze, warm sun and the sweet smell of spring, The Mediterranean Tuna Salad is all you need. Made with tuna in olive oil, a hard boiled egg, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onions and honey dijon vinaigrette dressing, this salad will take you to the shores of Greece and back in one bite.

Thinking of a hearty salad that will help you get back into shape as you shed off those winter pounds? Chick-a-BOOM is your best friend. Made with grilled chicken, bacon, feta cheese, hard boiled egg, lettuce, tomato, cucumber red onions, southwestern ranch dressing, this salad has just the right amounts of protein, fibre and vitamins to keep you fit and healthy.

A line-up of salads is never complete without at least one all-vegetarian offering. To that effect, we give you the BOOM Garden Salad, made with BOOM daily garnish, feta cheese, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onions and honey dijon vinaigrette dressing. If this doesn’t give you a spring in your step, nothing will.

Of course, there are those who can’t JUST have veggies in a salad, because it doesn’t seem like a whole meal without a generous portion of protein. For our carnivorous friends, we have the New York Steak Salad made with charbroiled medium well, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onions and south western ranch dressing.

So if you’re ready to have a spring fling with our healthy, fresh and yummy salads, stop by at Boom Breakfast, the best breakfast restaurant in Toronto and Vaughan to enjoy your greens!
