Salad is energizing–it’s like the food version of a glass of water.

Just like water, though, salads sometimes get a bad rap for being boring. I’ll admit, I’ve eaten many a naked, unaccessorized salad simply because it was good for me. But bulk it up with chunks of juicy fruit, chopped walnuts, or cubed cheddar, and I scarf it down.

Chef salad is the perfect answer for a night when you need a meal that’s frugal but still hearty. And although there are many versions of chef salad, this slightly sweet incarnation was a total hit for us. Give it a try…
