What’s For Dinner Wednesday? Chef’s Salad!

Too hot too cook and you need a hot dog and hamburger break? Whip up a Chef"S Salad bar.



  • Lettuce (any variety will do)
  • Bacon
  • Ham Steak
  • Sliced roasted deli turkey (I like Applegate)
  • Cheese (I offer cheddar and gorgonzola)
  • Hard boiled eggs, sliced
  • Red onion, diced
  • Frozen green peas (YUM!)
  • Tomatoes
  • Croutons
  • Dressing


The only things you have to cook are bacon and ham. Fry the bacon, drain off almost all the fat and using the same pan, fry the ham steak. 


Prep veggies and cheese.


Set up your Chef's Salad bar!
