easy chorizo and asparagus scramble {paleo}

How is it already Monday, again?! I’ve been meaning to get this post out to you all for a little while, but I’ve needed some time to do stuff around the house that desperately needed my attention (read: the big office clean out!). The good news is the office is allllmost done, and I’ve finally found some time to sit my booty down at my newly clean desk (yay!) and write about this delicious scramble! I’m not sure what’s been in the air lately, but I’ve been super into quick and healthy scrambles. And this easy chorizo and asparagus scramble has been a frequent star at our breakfast show.

In truth, i’ve always considered myself to be much more of a fried egg person.

Do you have a strong preference one way or the other?

Fried is still usually the way that I order ’em when we go out for brunch (except for maybe the ham scramble at Rockcreek here in Seattle! It’s SO GOOD. I could eat those eggs every dang weekend).

But lately, at home, I’ve been into scrambles. Flavorful, veggie packed, healthy, easy breeezy scrambles.

There’s something about a fresh fruit crisp that is the very epitome of summer dessert charm. It’s a simple + humble treat that, when paired with a scoop of creamy (in this case, dairy free) vanilla ice cream is like the cherry on top of a perfect summer day. 

We’ve been doing a lot of that simple cooking these days as the light ebbs long into the evening hours (although we are on the other side of that trend now, it will still be awhile before we’re eating dinner in the dark).

Dinners on our deck with the cool evening breeze are embraced as often as possible, usually with a glass of rosé (for me) and a cold beer (for him) in hand. And when you top off some sublime al fresco dining with a bowl of fresh paleo cherry strawberry crisp, we’re talking pretty near perfection as far as simple home feasting is concerned.

I first had the notion to put together a greek salad bowl during a lunch date with myself at Oddfellows Cafe here in Seattle. If you’re ever in Seattle do yourself a favor and brunch, lunch or have dinner there! It’s a great space with delicious food + and a wonderful drink selection.

They had a special running for a greek salad, and I sorta fell in love with it.

The weekend after that we were heading out to the coast to vacation on the beach for memorial day weekend with some friends of ours, and needed to plan all of our meals for the trip. I tried my hand at throwing together a loaded greek salad and it turned out so great. I knew with a couple more simple tweaks it was destined to be shared with you.

It comes piled high with tender spicy greens, sweet tomatoes, briny and buttery casteltravano olives (these olives bring me to my KNEES!), fresh cucumbers, cubed smoked turkey for some protein, spiced crispy chickpeas, all the fresh herbs, green onions, and a little feta cheese to set it off IF that’s your style.

And did I mention it’s topped with a creamy jalepeño dressing ?🙂

I DIE.

This situation is pretty much salad heaven, you guys.

Definitely not a classic greek salad, but we’ve all probably had our fair share of that, right?
