Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds Boston, bibb or green or red leaf lettuce, washed, trimmed, and dried
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 recipe shallot or herb vinaigrette, ranch, blue cheese or thousand island dressing
  • 4 ounces imported Swiss cheese, cut into 2-inch long matchstick pieces
  • 4 ounces baked ham, cut into 2-inch long matchstick pieces
  • 4 ounces smoked turkey, chicken or duck breast, cut into 2-inch long matchstick pieces
  • 4 ounces rare roast beef, cut into 1/4-inch by 2 inch matchstick pieces
  • 2 hard-cooked eggs, shelled, cut into wedges
  • 16 vine-ripened cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 kirby (pickling) cucumbers, sliced

Directions

Tear the lettuce into bite-sized pieces and put into a large mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss with 1/2 cup of the dressing. Divide the lettuce among 4 large individual serving bowls. Arrange the cheese, meats, eggs, and avocado, like the spokes of a wheel, on top of each salad. Scatter the tomatoes, cucumbers and croutons on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve and pass the remaining dressing at the table.
