Spinach Salad Recipe with Parma Ham

This salad contains eggs, spinach, Parma ham, cheese, croutons and more. Eggs are a healthy addition to a spinach salad recipe. They are rich in vitamin A, which is good for your skin and eyes, and vitamin D which helps with calcium absorption. Protein and folate (folic acid) are other egg benefits. You should boil the eggs for twelve minutes, to ensure the yolks are set and not runny. If you want runny-yolked eggs you only need to boil them for a few minutes but of course that would be unsuitable for a salad recipe.

As well as boiled eggs, this spinach salad recipe features two kinds of onion, feta cheese, Parma ham, and tomatoes. The feta cheese can be swapped for cheddar, mozzarella, or whatever you have in the refrigerator. The Parma ham can be switched for chopped turkey ham or any other kind of ham, or even shredded cooked chicken breast. The croutons add crunch and you can either buy these or make your own.

The dressing for this spinach salad recipe is based on extra-virgin olive oil and enhanced with honey, mustard, and rice vinegar. If you like a lot of dressing you can double the dressing recipe but, as it is, is should make enough for this salad. Perhaps you prefer to use a store-bought dressing, in which case you might pick mayonnaise and stir in some curry powder or another flavoring. Using mayonnaise would make this spinach salad recipe very egg-rich, of course!

Photo Description:

As the picture shows, this spinach salad recipe is appetizing and colorful. This makes a healthy lunch or dinner, or you could make the portions smaller and serve it as an appetizer. Hard-boiled eggs are easy to make and delicious in salad recipes. It might be a good idea to choose free-range eggs because the chickens producing these are allowed to roam free instead of being kept in little cages. Free-range eggs have a richer-colored yolk and will add more color, not to mention flavor, to this delicious and healthy spinach salad recipe.
