Summer Salads

Now is the best time to get the finest collect of salad recipes for the summer. Grab your copy below:

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 recipe I made with a few substitutions from the basic recipe...

First I used iceberg lettuce-notice that I peeled the leaves off rather than cutting them. Cutting will cause the leaves to brown at the cut edges.

Wash the lettuce in a bowl of water or under cold running water. Gently dry them in a clean dish towell 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:

iceberg lettuce



purple onion

orange and yellow peppers

aged white cheddar

bbq chicken breast-cubed

bbq roast pork-cubed

2 hard-boiled eggs

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.
