Directions

Place lettuce evenly on bottom of medium bowl (about 3 qt/3 L). Top with layers of carrot, tomato, cucumber, onion and turkey. Whisk oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt and pepper in small bowl. Drizzle over top of salad. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese evenly over top.
Cut eggs into quarters. Place on top of salad.
To serve salad, scoop down to bottom of bowl to reach all the layers.
TIPS
* Instead of turkey, use chicken, ham or bacon. Or
substitute additional vegetables such as celery, sweet pepper, mushrooms or zucchini. Try shredded or cubed Cheddar, Havarti, Swiss or Monterey Jack
cheese in place of Parmesan.
* Substitute 1/3 cup (75 mL) of your favourite dressing for the oil and lemon juice mixture.
