Ingredients

    1 head "living lettuce" (or a medium sized Boston lettuce)
    10 thin slices red onion
    2 tbsp Brianna's True Blue Cheese Salad Dressing
    3 hard boiled eggs, whites only
    1 medium sized firm tomato (heirloom if you can get it)
    2 tbsp Hormel Real Bacon (find by the bacon bits)
    2 tbsp Blue Cheese crumbles


Directions

1. Hard boil your eggs (I put them in boiling water for ten minutes then run them under cold water for three minutes so they're easier to peel)

2. Take off the outer layers of lettuce and core head. If dirty wash the remaining leaves and dry in salad spinner. Cut head in half and put each half in a salad bowl.

3. Peel and slice onion thinly. Add about 5 slices to each bowl.

4.. Drizzle 1 tbsp of dressing on each bowl.

5. Peel eggs, discard yolks and chop, not quite finely but into small pieces. Put 1.5 eggs on each bowl.

6. Chop tomato into smallish pieces. If very water toss onto paper towels to dry somewhat (or salad will be watery). Add half to each bowl.

7. Put one tbsp of bacon and one of blue cheese on each bowl.

Serve with a sharp knife so diner can slice and mix his or her salad.
