Chef Salad

Chef Salad is one of my favorite comfort foods. It works well for a quick lunch, or for dinner when you don't feel like turning on the stove.

Chef Salad

Mixed Salad Greens
Chopped turkey breast
Chopped cheddar cheese
Chopped hardboiled egg
Alfalfa sprouts

My other favorite additions are pickled beets, croutons, cold green peas, cucumbers, peppers of any variety, olives, and fresh mushrooms.

Mix everything together and then enjoy!

Here is my method for perfect hardboiled eggs: Place desired number of eggs in a cooking pot and fill with cool water until water is 1" above eggs. Cook uncovered until water boils. When water boils, cover pot with a lid and remove from heat. Let stand for 12 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of ice water and let cool for 10 minutes.
