Lettuce Salad with Hard Boiled Eggs & Homemade Dressing

Summertime salads are fun because they are made with fresh ingredients. Yet even when you don’t have access to fresh garden ingredients, this salad will still hit the spot.

All you need is lettuce and/or spinach and some hard-boiled eggs for the salad. If you want to add some diced bacon on top, you can. For the dressing, you’ll need mayonnaise, vinegar and sugar. Just a little dab will do!

Wash and dry your lettuce and/or spinach. Chop or cut into bite-sized pieces, then place in a bowl. Peel and rinse hard-boiled eggs, then slice evenly into thin slices. Mix the lettuce and eggs together, saving a few slices to garnish on the top.

For the dressing, you’ll need mayonnaise and as much (or more) sugar as vinegar. Mix the dressing well, then drizzle some on top of the salad. Drizzle; don’t pour! Stir gently and refrigerate until ready to serve.

You don’t need a lot of dressing. Give it time to seep down through the leaves and you’ll be amazed at how little it takes.

    Lettuce, bacon, and egg salad is one of my favorites! I like to add thinly sliced onion. What a great way to welcome spring!

    I think sliced onion is a great idea! My mother made this salad and onions gave her indigestion so that was never an option; but I am going to do this next time. 🙂
