Season to taste with salt and pepper. I like to add a little horseradish sauce to
the ham or roast beef salad for some zip.
For egg salad: Mix everything but the eggs well. Chop eggs to desired
chunkiness and fold into mixed ingredients. Add a few drops of tabasco sauce
if desired. A squeeze of lemon also goes well.
For eggless salad: Mix everything but the tofu Squish tofu with your hands
or with a fork until it breaks apart. Fold in with remaining ingredients.
Eggless salad should sit for at least an hour, refrigerated, before serving.
Lemon or a few drops soy sauce work great in tofu based salads.
**personal note*** Process meats find in a food processor for more of a
‘spread’ consistency. Don’t process with the remaining ingredients until you get the
meat broken down almost to the size you want. The spreads work very well on
lettuce leaves for roll-ups The chunky version works great over lettuce for a
salad meal.
NOTES : Counts for tofu and eggs not included in totals… tofu is 10 carbs,
eggs 3.6.

10 tbs heavy cream 2 tbs mayonnaise
1 tbs vinegar (optional)
How to Prepare:
Beat the heavy cream and mayonnaise together in a small mixing bowl.
Crumble half the bleu cheese into the mixture (reserving the other
half for a garnish) and stir a few times. Add a drizzle of the
vinegar if it is too thick. Chill for at least two hours. (The
longer it chills, the more intense the flavor becomes.)
Slice the butterhead lettuce in wedges (or tear into pieces if you
prefer) and place on four salad plates. Pour the bleu cheese
dressing over the lettuce. Arrange strips of the cold steak (cold
filet is outrageously good in this dish!)and four cherry tomato
halves over the lettuce. Sprinkle the reserved bleu cheese on top.
Give each plate a grind of fresh pepper and serve immediately.
