I love a great salad and a chef's salad is one of my favorites. And what's a salad without homemade dressing. I like blue cheese but this time I went with my homemade ranch dressing. Oh Yum!
Chef Salad With Homemade Ranch Dressing
1 head of lettuce
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup cooked ham, sliced into strips
1 cup cooked turkey, sliced into strips
3 medium whole fresh tomatoes, quartered
3 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and sliced
At least an hour before serving the salad, wash and dry the salad greens, and tear into bite-size pieces. Wrap in paper towel, and place in refrigerator. Meanwhile, get your other ingredients ready. Peel and slice hard-boiled eggs.
Place lettuce in large bowl. Toss lettuce to lightly coat leaves with dressing. Add more dressing if necessary and salt and black pepper to taste. Add the remaining ingredients and toss lightly. Serve chilled.
