Ham and Egg Spinach Salad

spinach-egg-and-ham-salad

After work today I spent and hour and a half mowing our new sod for the first time. It was looking like a little bit of a jungle. Birds were getting lost in the luscious vegetation and our poor Boston Terrior Nico has to bound like Bambi to get from one end to the other. Our yard is definitely shaping up to be a beautiful oasis.

Getting side tract like that put me back a bit and I started dinner a little later that what I hoped as my son had a soccer game at 7:00pm so I knew I had to get crack-a-lacking and this crunchy little salad was done in less than 30 minutes start to finish.

I prefer my eggs a little softer than hard boiled which added a nice creaminess to the dish. You could choose to make the eggs the night before but I also prefer them slightly warm.

The family enjoyed the cubed ham but I chose to have mine with flaked tuna. If you prefer you could also choose left over chicken breast or flaked salmon. Once again, a salad made to order.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
