Updated Chef Salad


This chef’s salad is a fresh approach to the one I remember from years ago. I like it best with the Lemon Poppyseed Dressing.

What you will need

1/4 lb. thinly sliced roasted turkey breast

1/4 lb. thinly sliced smoked ham, such as Black Forest

1/4 lb. thinly sliced dry sausage, such as spicy soppressata or peppered cervelat

10 cups lightly packed mixed greens (I like to-use a mesclun mix)

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved (or quartered-if large)

6 oz. small fresh mozzarella balls (called-ciliegini or bocconcini) or whole fresh mozzarella, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1 roasted red pepper, peeled, seeded, and thinly sliced

12 niçoise or other good-quality black olives,-pitted

2 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and quartered lengthwise

1 recipe Garlic Croutons (optional)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

1/3 cup minced fresh herbs (I like a mix of parsley, mint, and chives)

1 cup Lemon Poppyseed Dressing, Balsamic Vinaigrette, or Creamy Black Pepper Dressing
