Mah goodness. That right there is a big bowl of wonderful that is going to change the way you choose your deli meats, friends.

I mean, what can I say? Chef’s Salad may not be the world’s best amazing salad (YES it is!), but it is what I want to eat all day, every day. This classic American salad wins my heart each and every time.

Let’s get right down to it. I adore this salad for many reasons. One of them being that you can actually just clean out your cheeses-and-meats-fridge-drawer and toss those around with bacon, tomatoes, cucumbers, eggs, and a homemade Italian dressing for a quick salad-as-a-main-meal-situation.

But allow me to back up a bit. Mainly because we need to speak about how everyone needs a deli meats and cheeses fridge drawer, and how said drawer should include these guys, and ONLY these guys ⤵⤵⤵

    My favorite way to enjoy lunchmeats is to grill it a bit and serve up on toast, served with all the condiments including mayo.
