Deviled Egg Chef Salad Recipe

Chef Salads come in all sizes and varieties, but there are always a few things they have in common – crisp greens, two types of meat – either ham, bacon, chicken, turkey, or another favorite, hard boiled eggs, vegetables, and cheese.

And since this is a version of a chef salad that I love to make and serve as a meal after I’ve made baked ham, I thought it would be perfect to share with you right about now, too.

What makes this chef salad different from all the others?

Well, I top it with deviled eggs!

It’s perfect for after the holidays if you still have a little ham leftover and are looking to lighten up the menu just a touch. If you have leftover deviled eggs, you can have this salad thrown together in no time flat.

I’m a bit taken with this chef salad now. Maybe it’s because I’m switching over from all those heavier meals from the holidays to something a bit lighter and this salad definitely doesn’t leave you hungry in a few hours. Filling and satisfying, it’s perfect for supper even.

Here’s the recipe for this Chef Salad, but really just make it your own. Toss in whatever leftover protein you may have on hand – chicken, turkey, or ham. A combination always works well, too. But, will you do me a favor? Promise you’ll try the deviled egg sometime really soon.

I think you’ll love it.

    What a great idea, Robyn. We love deviled eggs, but you can only eat so many of them as a side dish. Now I have another fantastic way to enjoy them!

    Which type of salad dressing do you prefer?

    • 24

      Normally, I prepare a vinaigrette dressing to go along with it or a homemade ranch dressing. Whatever dressing you prefer works perfectly.

    Love it!!!!
