Instead of starting his day with traditional eggs Benedict, Food & Wine's Justin Chapple opts for this healthier salad. To mimic hollandaise, he makes a richly flavored yogurt dressing, and he tosses that with greens, torn ham and crunchy English muffin croutons. It's a deeply satisfying and healthy alternative to heavier brunch options.
