Greens, Grapes and Granola Breakfast Salad

Trade your blender and straw for a bowl and fork. A green smoothie is the perfect breakfast for someone on the go, but you can enjoy all[ the same fruits, vegetables and nutrients at your leisure in a salad inspired by the drink. There's more vitamin C, too, since it can be depleted by the heat and agitation of your blender. Pair the salad with a mug of green tea, and you'll have an antioxidant-rich breakfast!]
