Serve this simple salad as a side or lunch or dinner entrée.
Divide lettuce evenly among 4 serving plates.
Top each with 1 sliced tomato and 4 egg wedges.
Sprinkle each with 2 tablespoons cheese.
Serve with reduced fat vinaigrette, if desired.
Very fresh eggs can be difficult to peel. To ensure easily peeled eggs, buy and refrigerate them a week to 10 days in advance of cooking. This brief "breather" allows the eggs time to take in air, which helps separate the membranes from the shell. Hard-boiled eggs are easiest to peel right after cooling. Cooling causes the egg to contract slightly in the shell.
This recipe is an excellent source of protein and choline, and a good source Vitamin A, Vitamin D and calcium.
