Italian Style Salad with Great Day Farms Eggs

Italian Style Salad

Do you ever get in a cooking rut?  I do!  Of course, I started blogging and cooking regularly just to get out of the cooking rut!  Luckily, for the most part I can come up with recipes on the spot; however, I still like EASY recipes too!

One of my favorite go to items lately and staples at the store is romaine lettuce.  I love it!  My favorite way to eat it is grilled, but it’s quickly become my go to lettuce choice for salads.  Along with the romaine lettuce, I also have fell in love with the Great Day Farms Hard Boiled Eggs.  These can be found in the deli section of most Walmart stores and I can tell you they are delicious!

So delicious in fact that I was able to get my picky eater to eat one!  Woot!  I also love how easy they are to toss on salads or sandwiches for lunch or in the mornings for breakfast.

This past week we had a great abundance of cherry tomatoes in our garden along with green onions.  So, I decided to saute them with a little olive oil to make a delicious, light dressing to top our salads.

The result?  A light, zesty treat that was low in fat and high in protein!  Perfect!

Now, to top all those veggies, I opted to use some freshly sliced cold cuts in our fridge.  I mixed some turkey with roast beef to add some meat to the salad.  I love meat on my salads especially in this case when the salad was my main dish for lunch.  Lastly, I topped it with Italian Shredded Cheese and Sunflower Nuts!  Delicious!

    That looks delicious and so easy to make! Summer definitely calls for little to no cooking and this is perfect for that especially with the packaged boiled eggs ready to go!

    I love getting these hard boiled eggs. I can use them in so many things but don’t have to take the time out to boil them. It saves me time especially in my already busy schedule. Great idea!
