Lettuce Salad With Egg Salad " Dressing"

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LUv 2 BaKE

This meal sized salad has a BEAUTIFUL presentation. Egg and cottage cheese provide protein, while the lettuce and many vegetables create a light, yet filling, meal. The amounts of lettuce and vegetables is an estimate. Just use as much as you want. Also, use the vegetables you prefer.

Definitely good enough to go on our regular rotation, esp. since we have changed our diet to mostly salads, and severely cut back on meats and wheat. I tossed the salad with ranch yogurt dressing first. Also added pickle juice to the egg mixture, to get the consistency that I'm accustomed to. Was surprised that even then, it was a bit bland. Will try to spark it up with maybe dill relish and some more spices or herbs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Salad - tear lettuce into bite sized pieces, place on dinner sized plate leaving the middle of the plate empty; sprinkle the chopped vegetables on the lettuce.
  2. Egg Salad - combine all ingredients in a small bowl, mix well; chill.
  3. Right before eating, scoop egg salad onto the middle of the plate, so the lettuce and vegetables surround it.
  4. Garnish with tomato slices placed around the egg salad.
  5. If you wish to have this as a side salad, use two dessert sized plates and arrange half the ingredients on each plate as above.
