Chef Salad

Chef Salad

This Chef Salad is versatile and you can invent your own version, but if you have a carniceria (Mexican meat market) near you, try their chuletas ahumadas (smoked pork chops). Otherwise, ham works well.

Chef Salad is a meal in itself, so it’s great for lunch, or a summer evening.

Try it next time it’s too hot to cook, and if you’d like to make your own Thousand Island Dressing, see my recipe – it’s yummy!
