Chef Salad My Way!



I am not a huge fan of salads which is evident when you take a peek at my ass, BUT, it was hot and I was tired and I decided to make a nice Chef Salad for Dinner.

My husband of course did not want the usual tired ham and cheese, so I chose to go a different route and it was sensational! The slightly salty turkey with the smooth provolone, YUM

This salad feeds two hungry heffers! or 4 as a side dish, I served with some Olive Flat Bread from New Seasons

Green Leaf Lettuce, torn and washed/dried (I used half of a large head)
3 hard boiled eggs sliced
4-6 ounces smoked turkey breast cut into strips
4-6 ounces Provolone Cheese cut into strips
assortment of baby tomatoes
1/2 English Cucumber sliced in half then sliced into half coins

Assemble and dress as you wish, topping with fresh ground pepper!

This looks great Cheryl. I love using turkey instead of ham. I have to tell you that if I had this for dinner I would end up eating a ton of bread on the side. I love bread with salads!!!!

You have given me the perfect quick dinner for tonight. This looks really good. I don't have any turkey breast which I can readily use tonight but I do have some chicken breast. Hopefully it will taste as good.
