Polly’s Mexicali Chef’s Salad

  • Roman Hearts lettuce- 2 oz
  • Grape tomatoes 2 oz
  • Black Forest ham 2 oz
  • Sliced turkey 1 oz
  • American Cheese 1 oz
  • 2 Hard boiled eggs broken up
  • Guacamole salsa- 2 tablespoons
  • Pico de gallo- 2 tablespoons

On a good quality kitchen scale like a Cuisinart, zero out the scale.

Once you have the bowl in place zeroed out, start adding in the ingredients, zeroing it out every time so the scale weighs each ingredient properly.

You can even use the large dish that comes with most good quality cooking scales, which is simply what I did with my Cuisinart.

Line the bowl with romaine hearts lettuce, then the grape tomatoes, sliced ham-i simply ripped up with my hands, American Cheese-that I ripped in small pieces, turkey, two hard boiled eggs broken up, guacamole salsa, and then the pico de gallo drizzled all over the top of it for the dressing.

Just came out really well and I figured out the nutrition analysis, I just have to write it down and then add it.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
