The BEST Side Salad Recipe

Serves: 5

We have this salad at least a couple of times a week at home. It gets in our veggies, and it takes a lot of guesswork out of what we are going to have along side our main dish, because it goes with almost everything!

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


3 heads of Romaine lettuce
1 tablespoon dried basil
2 teaspoons of garlic powder
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 roma tomato, chopped
3 4 slices 3-4 of cooked bacon, chopped
2 boiled eggs, chopped
1/4 cup celery, chopped
1/4 cup carrot, chopped


Slice romaine leaves off of white stems, (discard white stems) and chop lettuce in to small pieces and pour in large serving bowl.

Next layer on to the lettuce, the tomato, bacon, eggs, celery, carrots, and cheddar cheese.

Sprinkle on top the garlic powder and the dried basil.

Serve with choice of dressing. (Our favorite is to make the Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch dressing, with the seasoning packet, buttermilk, and mayo.)
