Chef's Salad

A delicious and simple dish to make is the chef's salad.  This salad can be served with one or more varieties of meat and a variety of dressings.  I like it with ham and a vinaigrette.

Here is a traditional recipe for the chef's salad:

8 cups lettuce
1 cup ham, julienne strips
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup Swiss cheese, julienne strips
2 eggs, hard-boiled, peeled and sliced
salad dressing

Tear the lettuce into small bite-sized pieces and put in a large bowl.  Add the ham, tomatoes, cheese and hard-boiled egg.  Before serving, add a dressing of your choice.  This recipe makes four servings.  The chef's salad can even be a full meal.
