Saturday Breakfast on the Riviera

Here's one of my Saturday breakfast ensembles:
Smoked salmon (Sockeye from Salmon Village, Vancouver, BC.)
Toasted Ciabatta
Cucumber salad: diced and mixed with 1 tablespoon of tartar sauce + 1 tablespoon of yogurt + salt/pepper to season
Fresh baby watercress tossed with a light Japanese yuzu dressing
Red seedless grapes
This mix of salty, crunchy, fresh, creamy and sweet flavors will wake up your taste buds for a long sunny weekend.
Being a glass-aholic, I'm always looking for glass cups, plates and bowls. This Riviera collection is one of my all time favorites. It looks like slab of ice crystals, so when you are serving home-made sushi or a Mediterranean salad or a grilled panini, you get to see all the vivid colors of the food glistening against the reflection of the glass.
