Pack the Perfect Picnic: Contemporary Chef Salad Recipe
Nothing says spring or even summer to me like a really good salad. When I say salad, I am not talking about a bowl of lettuce rather a delicious looking salad that makes the person next to you jealous. I want big, juicy vegetables, meat and a really good salad dressing. I also like the meat sliced on a salad. I prefer Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Lunchmeats Oven Roasted Turkey because the slices tend to get more evenly dispersed into each bite. We hope that you enjoy this Pack the Perfect Picnic: Contemporary Chef Salad Recipe post.
Salad makes a great lunch or dinner and usually saves me from having to cook anything. Salads are so versatile and extremely easy to customize. Simply set out various ingredients and people can build their own. This also makes a great impromptu dinner with friends where everyone gets exactly what they want by building their own salad. Our twist on a Chef Salad features just turkey along with the addition of avocado and feta plus a crisp, refreshing dressing that we just know you will love.
