Budget Menu Chef's Salad

This salad revolves around using ingredients from the Week 1 grocery list. This Salad consists of Lettuce, Ham, Chicken, Grated Carrot, Tomato Wedges, Diced Hard Cooked Eggs and Grated Cheese.
Place eggs in sauce pan and cover by 1/2" with cold water. Place on stove, uncovered, over medium high heat. Once they simmer, cook for 15 minutes. Using cold water, cool eggs down until they can be handled. Peal and slice or chopped for salad.
In the meantime, slice Ham and cut into strips. Remove chicken from bone and cut up. On the night you cook the carrots, save one for this salad. Peel and grate the carrot. Cut Romas into 8ths resulting in little wedges.
Rinse, spin dry and tear lettuce leaves apart. Place on in a bowl. Add a few Tbl Ranch Dressing and toss to coat. Divide onto plates. Top with all ingredients keeping them separate from eachother so they can be indentified. Add 4-Cheese Mexican Cheese as well. Serve with bread and additional Ranch on the side.
