Serves 24

Ingredients:

  • 3 lettuces (try using 3 different varieties)
  • 5 tomatoes, chopped
  • 300g croutons (toast 30 slices of wholemeal bread and cut into 1cm squares)
  • 1 cup reduced fat cheese, shredded
  • 24 hard boiled eggs, halved
  • 200g reduced fat Caesar salad dressing
  • 24 disposable containers
  • 24 disposable forks

Method:

  1. Wash and dry lettuce and separate leaves. Tear or chop leaves into smaller sizes where necessary.
  2. Divide the lettuce, tomatoes, croutons and shredded cheese into the 24 containers.
  3. Top with a boiled egg and drizzle with a small amount of reduced fat Caesar salad dressing.

 

Hints:

  • The old crusts of bread make good croutons. Save the crusts from the bread you use to make sandwiches.
  • If you use commercial croutons, choose reduced fat varieties.
