Classic Chef Salad


Ingredients
1 1/2 pounds Boston, Bibb, green or red leaf lettuce, or a mixture, washed, trimmed, and dried
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup dressing of your choice, such as shallot or herb vinaigrette, ranch, or blue cheese
4 ounces imported Swiss cheese, cut into 2 inch long matchstick pieces
4 ounces baked ham, cut into 2 inch long matchstick pieces
4 ounces smoked turkey, chicken or duck breast, cut into 2 inch long matchstick pieces
4 ounces rare roast beef, cut into 1/4 inch by 2 inch matchstick pieces
2 hard boiled eggs, shelled, cut into wedges
1 ripe Hass avocado, diced
16 vine ripened cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
2 cucumbers, sliced
1 cup toasted croutons


Directions
Tear the lettuce into bite sized pieces and put into a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste and toss with 1/2 cup of the dressing. Divide the lettuce among 4 large individual serving bowls. Arrange the cheese, meats, eggs, and avocado, like the spokes of a wheel, on top of each salad. Scatter the tomatoes, cucumbers, and croutons on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve and pass the remaining dressing at the table.
