The good thing about this salad is that it can be a meal all by itself. The salad also works without the cheese or the croutons.

Makes two large portions:


Mixed greens, 2 cups

Fresh Green beans, edges trimmed, 2 cups

Cherry tomatoes, halved, 1 cup

Red onion, chopped, 1/4

Hard boiled eggs, chopped, 2 medium

Celery, diced, 2 sticks

Croutons, 3/4 cups

Cheese or vegan cheese, grated, 3/4 cup

Olive oil, salt and pepper to taste

Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the green beans. Cook the beans for a few minutes. Taste and make sure the beans are crispy, but cooked. Drain them in cold water and let the water run until the beans get cool. Put the mixed greens on a plate. Put the celery, the onion and the cherry tomatoes on top. Add the eggs, the croutons and the cheese. Add the olive oil, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
