Chef salad was always one of my favorite things to order back in the 80s.  It seemed like almost every restaurant offered a version of this salad, even McDonalds used to serve chef salad!  Here is the traditional recipe that I remember....

  • 8 cups salad greens, washed and torn into bite sized pieces
  • 1 cup ham, julienne strips
  • 1 cup turkey, julienne strips
  • 1/2 cup green onion, chopped fine
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped fine
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, julienne strips
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, julienne strips
  • 2 eggs, hard boiled, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup bacon bits, for garnish
  • 8 ounces salad dressing, of your choice
Container: large salad bowl
  • Prepare salad greens of your choice by washing and tearing them into bite sized pieces; place in a large bowl.
  • Toss the greens with remaining ingredients, reserving some julienned pieces of meat, cheese, and egg slices for garnish.
  • Just before serving, toss with a dressing of your choice and garnish with strips of meat, cheese, and hard cooked egg slices.
