Sausage Egg and Cheese Salad

This has become an all time favorite salad in our house lately. Although not what you normally think of when you say Sausage Egg and Cheese, this salad combines them all together for a splendid twist.

What You Need:

1 Head Romaine Lettuce
2 Tbsp. Red Onion
4 Tbsp. Finely chopped Carrots
4 Tbsp. Diced Cucumber
3 Hard Boiled Eggs (Tip: Boil 10 minutes, run cold water over them until cool enough to                                     handle and peel then. So much easier than waiting until they are cold.)
3 Slices Salami Chopped
3 Slices Pepperoni Chopped
1 Tsbp. Bacon Bits
1/2 Cup Mexican Cheese

Assemble and Serve with Dressings to Consider: Blue Cheese, Ranch, Creamy Italian, Italian, French and Olive Oil

As Always: If you want less or more of anything in the ingredients, for all means adjust. Sometimes I am in a meat mood and I need lots.
