Eatwell Farmhouse Kitchen

Lunchtime on Friday.  Now that it is much warmer I am craving green salads again.  I love really big salads that make a meal, but to be honest I don’t enjoy making them so much.  But as I already mentioned I am in love with our “herb garden” so I am having fun playing with making salad dressings.

Lettuce, washed and chopped or torn

4 Hardboiled Eatwell Farm Eggs

A few slices of good Ham or Smoked Turkey 

1/2 cup or so of cubed Cheese I used Cheddar

A little bit of crumbled Blue Cheese

Some chopped Olives, marinated Red Peppers

Chopped, toasted Nuts

Olive Oil

Good Vinegar and or Lemon Juice

Fat to Acid should be 3 to 1

Salt and Pepper

Any Fresh Herbs you have left 

In the blender put the salt and pepper, olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice and a good amount of fresh herbs.  Blend well, taste and adjust for more herbs or salt and pepper.  Put all the salad pieces into a large bowl: lettuce, sliced hard boiled eggs, cheese, olives, peppers, nuts etc.  You can lay the lettuce on the bottom and build up from there, you can toss or leave it layered, or put some of the extra ingredients on the lettuce with a little dressing and toss, then top with what you have left.  Enjoy!
