His + Hers Chef Salad

Ross and I were both raised in the way that if we didn't eat the food made for us then we just weren't going to eat. I choked down many florets of broccoli and seemingly endless mounds of english peas as a result, only to grow to love essentially ever food I've ever come in contact with {yes, including broccoli and english peas}. 

...and so the tradition continues. If I'm in the kitchen and I'm making a salad, guess what? Ross is eating a salad too.  The good news is that we both love salads. Ross loves nothing more than to start every meal with a salad, and I love nothing more than to make a meal out of a salad.

Over time we've come to a consensus on a few make-at-home salads that satisfy both of our salad requirements. My salads must always include avocado {always!} and his must include a substantial amount of protein if meant to keep him full until the next meal. So here's the answer {one of them anyway}, a not-so-classic Chef Salad. {Who doesn't love a Chef Salad?}

His + Hers Chef Salad

1 heart of romaine lettuce, chopped
1 1/2 cups baby spinach, chopped
1 carrot, shredded with a vegetable peeler
1/2 cup grape tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup chopped roasted turkey
2 hard boiled eggs
1 avocado, sliced
1/2 cup mandarin oranges
salt and pepper
balsamic dressing to taste
