This past month has been one of the most tumultuous months of my life, from a terrifyingly close call at the Boston Marathon to my graduation from *gasp* college. The vast number of uncertainties and changes in my life is daunting. One thing that will always be a constant in my life is this Greek Salad with Hardboiled Eggs and Homemade Croutons.
Greek Salad with Hardboiled Eggs and Homemade Croutons
4 cups romaine or butter lettuce
1 bunch scallions, chopped
4 cherry tomatoes, chopped
3 button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 hardboiled eggs, sliced
Black pepper, to taste
2 tbs fresh lemon juice
1.5 tbs neutral oil
Stale bread, such as ciabatta or French baguette
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice and cut bread into cubes. Place in a large Ziploc bag and drizzle olive oil over the bread. Close bag and shake croutons. Place bread onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt and garlic powder. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
For Salad, place vegetables in large salad bowl. Spoon feta on top, and then add hardboiled eggs and croutons. Grind black pepper on top.
