Taste Tested: Breadalbane Spring Salad

With spring so freshly sprung, we thought it time to celebrate with a fresh, seasonally inspired salad. This recipe comes to us from Chef Jer Robbins of the Feast On Certified Scozia Restaurant at the Breadalbane Inn & Spa in Fergus, Ontario.


Open for lunch and dinner daily, Scozia boasts authentically prepared house-made Italian food made with locally-sourced ingredients. The kitchen team take inspiration from the surrounding Wellington County countryside, and who wouldn’t! Rolling hills, kitchen gardens, and lambs out to pasture are just some of the sights to see when exploring the area. If you’re heading that way, make sure to book a room at the Breadalbane Inn — it makes a great home base for exploring all things edible in Wellington County!
