Recommendations for low-salt Mother's Day brunch

I decided to have my MIL and SIL over for brunch on Sunday, but I wasn't thinking about my MIL's high blood pressure issues. I'm not sure what to serve, since bacon, etc. are out. So, I need a main course (frittata?) and dessert ideas. Thanks.

If you make a vegetable quiche with fresh eggs and a cheese like Parmesan, you really don't need to add much salt. Leave it out and double the fresh herbs for more flavor if you like.
For dessert, a fruit salad is always lovely, especially in the morning. Or you could do poached pears with a scoop of cinnamon laced ricotta

You could make a wonderful frittata using mushrooms for your umami rather than meat. Onions, peppers, some green garlic, maybe ramps? and some great cheese shredded in or on top.

If you add shredded cheese, use just a little. But of a cheese choose a 5 yr-old cheddar, or another that has a big flavour Cheese inherently has a lot of salt. Another idea is fresh salmon with wild rice or a wild rice combination. Dried cranberries & sliced almonds are nice with it, sautéed onions too add a green salad & a fruit salad with a cookie or chocolate & you have a superb lunch. You can cook the salmon the day before, serve it cold & it. Will be easier

Thanks everyone! I decided to make a frittata and just not put cheese on the entire top :). Also serving a pea crostini and an artichoke salad. Meyer lemon tart for dessert. Should be good to go now!
