Some mornings, I crave something a little more decadent than a smoothie or breakfast cereal.  There are times when I want something a little richer.  Soft boiled eggs are so simple, delicious and comforting.  They always come out perfect and only take about 5 minutes to cook.

Bring a small pot of water to a boil.  Slowly add your whole eggs to the boiling water with a large spoon.  Set your time for exactly 5 1/2 minutes.  When they are done, remove from water to a small bowl and cover with cool water.  I find it easiest to peel at the sink under a slow stream of water.  Dry gently on a paper towel.  Sprinkle with salt.

Serve over a bed of greens drizzled with mustard vinaigrette and berries.

Vinaigrette:

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or fresh minced garlic)
1/2 teaspoon herbs de Provence
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 cup extra virgin love oil

Add all ingredients to a small glass jar and shake
