Upgrade the diner favorite Chef’s Salad with this recipe.

First, mushrooms and asparagus make it a little fancier (and healthier) than is typical.

Then, the most important thing is choosing clean meats. Skip the deli counter and go for fresh turkey and/or ham that hasn’t been processed. Or if you really want cured, look for organic brands that are cured without the use of nitrates.

Finally, dress with Keri’s famous light, lemon dressing, which really goes with everything.
