The beauty of this salad recipe is that you can easily tweak it to your liking. I like romaine lettuce in my salads but you can use whatever kind of lettuce you have on hand.

Now you are probably wondering how to make the perfect hard-boiled egg. Here’s how I like to do it.

Fill a pot with cold water. Add the eggs ensuring they are covered with water. Bring the water to a boil. Turn off the heat and cover and let sit for 13 minutes. Not 12 minutes. Not 14 minutes. 13 minutes.

Remove the eggs from the pot and place them in an ice bath for 5 minutes. This will prevent the eggs from cooking further AND make them easier to peel. Voila!

If you are fortunate enough to own a pressure cooker, you can also cook the eggs by following the directions in my Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs article.

When it comes time to assemble your salad you have several options. Personally, I like to add all the salad ingredients to a serving dish then drizzle the dressing over the top and toss till well combined.

Alternatively, you can simply add all the ingredients to the bowl, including the dressing, and toss till combined. It’s totally up to you!
