|Chef's salad with Thousand Island dressing|
One of the restaurants we visited often was The Cambridge House. They had one of those 5 page menus that had too many choices on it. My favorite quick lunch was a Francheezie, or a Chef’s salad with creamy garlic, thousand Island dressing, or a little of each.
|Chef's salad ingredients|
8 cups iceberg lettuce, washed, torn, or chopped
2 whole tomatoes, cut into wedges
12 cucumber slices
2 whole hard boiled eggs, peeled, sliced, or wedges
1/4 lb. Swiss cheese, cut in strips
1/4 lb. ham, cut into strips
to taste thousand island dressing, creamy garlic, or both
toasted croutons, as needed
|Hard-boiled eggs either sliced or wedges|
Crumble bacon pieces and set to the side.
Prepare your croutons and set to the side.
Prepare your hard boiled eggs. When cool, peel, slice and set to the side. You can also cut the eggs into wedges if you prefer.
Slice the cheese and the ham into strips and set to the side.
Cut the tomatoes into wedges and set to the side.
Serve with your favorite salad dressing.
Place the tomato wedges around the edges, followed by the eggs; add the strips of ham and cheese.
Toss croutons around the salad and place some on a plate to the side with the Thousand Island dressing to be added by those eating the salad.
