Chef Salad – a healthy and delicious salad that’s perfect for lunch or dinner with a homemade dressing and the perfect meal for under 30 minutes.
Oh hi there, web peeps! How about something healthy for a change? This salad is awesome and it’s very very filling. You can have this as a main meal for lunch or dinner. My husband almost had a fit when he saw salad for dinner, but as he started eating it, he loved it and he was actually very full after.
This salad has the best ingredients. Boiled eggs, ham, cheese, delicious croutons, which I couldn’t stop eating and it’s loaded with veggies. This salad is so good you won’t even feel like you’re eating a salad.

Chef Salad - a healthy and delicious salad that's perfect for lunch or dinner with a homemade dressing and the perfect meal for under 30 minutes.
- 1 boston lettuce chopped
- 1/2 cup peas
- 1/2 cup carrots grated
- 3/4 cup cheddar cheese shredded
- 1/2 english cucumber sliced
- 6 green onions chopped
- 6 cherry tomatoes quartered or halved
- 4 eggs hard boiled
- Mix the first 6 ingredients in a small bowl to make the dressing for the salad.
- Mix all the salad ingredients together and plate in a salad bowl. Drizzle with the dressing.
To get perfect hard boiled eggs all the time, add your eggs eggs to a saucepan, cover with at least 2 inches of cold water. Bring the water to a full boiling, you should see big boiling bubbles, turn off the heat and cover the pot. Keep the saucepan on the burner for about 10 to 12 minutes. At this point I like to run cold water over the eggs and peel them under the tap, this way it's easy to peel the eggs and you get perfectly peeled eggs every single time.
Adding a bit of salt or vinegar to your water for the eggs, will prevent the eggs from cracking while cooking.
