"I like my chef salad recipes to have lots of ham, cheese and eggs."
This recipe is basically a mixed veggy salad with cheese and meat added to the mix, usually turkey and ham. It can be quite a filling meal by itself.
Here is the basic recipe:
*Salad greens(about 6 cups or a 10 oz.bag of mixed)
*1-2 sliced tomatoes
*1 sliced cucumber
*2 sliced celery stalks
*Turkey-sliced or cubed
*Ham-sliced or cubed
*Cheese-slice or shredded
*2-boiled eggs-peeled and sliced
You can substitute these ingredients with the following:
1. Turkey: Chicken, canned chicken, any deli-styled meat.
2. Ham: Bacon, bacon bits, pork, any deli-styled meat.
3.Cheese: Any kind at all, from mild to extra strong.
You may want to add olives as well, and maybe a few peppers. Add any dressing you prefer.
Here's a chef salad I made with a few substitutions from the basic recipe...
Wash the lettuce in a bowl of water or under cold running water.
Gently dry them in a clean dish towel or a salad spinner. When using a spinner be careful how much lettuce you put in it. Too much will not dry properly. If you want to avoid this step you can always buy a bag of pre-washed salad greens.
The ingredients I used are as follows:
I put all the ingredients in the bowl and gently tossed the mix. I then peeled and sliced the 2 boiled eggs and laid the slices on top of the salad. This chef salad is now ready for your favorite dressing.
