½ cup Sliced deli Ham

¼ cup Cheese (cut into small cubes)

½ cup Grated cucumber, or sliced your choice

½ cup diced tomatoes

Parmesan cheese for garnish

Garlic bread- you will need 1/4 cup butter, 2 cloves of finely minced garlic


Chef Salad


Clean your Vegetables, I use a salad spinner for convenience. I like to slice my lettuce into thinner chunks, as with the rest of my vegetables, its just visually appealing to me.

Arrange your lettuce onto a nice platter. You can cook your own chicken or buy it precooked. You can find precooked chicken in most delis at your local grocery store. Arrange your chicken, sliced cucumber, ham, tomatoes and cheese cubes in the center of your salad.

Remember this is your creation you can make it your own. I like to center all of my vegetables. Slice your eggs into four pieces and set around the edge of your salad. If you like croutons add them to your salad.

Add some Parmesan cheese and sprinkle some parsley over your meal, don't forget a side of your favorite dressing. Placing your dressing on the side lets everyone choose the amount of dressing they like.

Add some garlic bread and dinner is ready.



Gluten free? No problem there are some wonderful wheat and gluten free breads available. There are some wonderful meat alternatives like vegan deli meats. If you want to add a twist use Smoked Salmon,
turkey, or thinly sliced pork instead of ham. Grilled tofu is a nice substitute too!
