Chef’s Salad


Salads are one of my favorite warm weather foods and the addition of meat, hard cooked eggs and cheese takes this from side to main dish. The bonus of this is if you can get pre cooked eggs at the deli or refrigerator case at your local grocery it is a no cook meal.

Recipe by Micha

A great main dish salad for those times when you don’t want to heat up your house.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 cups washed mixed salad greens
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 tomato, cut into wedges

Cooking Directions

Divide greens between four plates. Top each plate with 1/4 each of onion, tomato, egg, ham, cheese, dressing and any of the optional toppings if desired. Serve immediately.
