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:
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.
