How To Make summertime salad

  • 1
    Before assembling the salad, be sure to thoroughly clean, wash or rinse your fresh vegetables. Then pat dry with paper towels.
  • 2
    Cut or slice fruit and vegetables into desired pieces. Then place them in a bowl to serve.
  • 3
    Place half of a hard boiled egg on each salad, then place the croutons on top just before serving salad.

    Use desired salad dressing to go along with the salad. We used Kraft Raspberry Lite Vinaigrette to go with our salad. And it is very good!
