Chef Salad

Happy Easter!  Alleluia!  He is Risen!

It is always such a joyful day!

Today’s Sunday Funday is celebrating too.  Only we’re thinking ahead to those Easter leftovers!

In my house, there is always an abundance of ham and hard boiled eggs leftover.  The ham is no big deal.  In fact, my family loves ham so much that they’ll just eat the leftover and get sad if I horde some back for a recipes like Scalloped Potatoes & Ham or Ham & Bean Soup.

The eggs on the other hand…

We go strong for a little while and then the enthusiasm for eggs quickly fades.

Luckily for me, I love a loaded main dish lunch salad and that’s how I plan to repurpose those leftovers this year!

This chef salad is loaded with all sorts of great protein sources that just happen to be Easter leftovers too!

Enjoy these other recipes that use of those leftovers!

Chef Salad

2-3 cups spinach or leafy green of choice

1 hard boiled egg, sliced

⅓ cup cooked ham, diced

2 tablespoons shredded cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons croutons

1 tablespoon ranch dressing

1 tablespoon sunflower seeds

Place the spinach in a bowl.  Top with remaining ingredients and enjoy.


  1. Great idea. I normally use my eggs for deviled eggs or egg salad but this Chef Salad is perfect. Happy Easter Amy. This is the day that the Lord has made...Alleluia!!

  2. I love chef's salad but hardly think to make one at home. Of course, we haven't been going out to restaurants for ages so I guess I should now! I love your spinach version, Amy.

  3. Salads are the perfect way to use up those leftover hard boiled eggs! I'm about to slice one up and enjoy it on a toasted bagel with cream cheese for breakfast. Yum!

  4. Delightful salad! Please come over and share this with the Food on Friday crowd over at Carole's Chatter. Cheers
