Cobb Salad

I have been really craving greens recently. I had greens at all three meals today! I baked a ham last week, so was trying to come up with a different way to use it up! Cobb Salad it is! This dressing is really yummy.

2 eggs, hardboiled, cut into 1/4ths
1/2 lb deli turkey or fresh cooked turkey, cut into 2" julienne strips
1/2 lb deli or fresh cooked ham, cut into 2" julienne strips
1/2 cup swiss or Jarlsberg cheese, cut into strips
Head lettuce, red leaf or iceberg torn into strips
Handful grape tomatos, halved

2 t dried oregano
1/2 c olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c white wine vinegar

To make dressing: Whisk oregano, oil, and garlic until foamy. Then add vinegar and whisk until combined. Or, if you are like me, use your Magic Bullet (or boring blender....) and blend first 3 ingredients, then add vinegar and blend until combined.

Mix greens, egg, meats, cheese, and tomato. Toss with dressing to taste, a little goes a long way! Top with croutons. Quick and easy dinner!
