Prep

  1. Make hard boiled eggs - Cover eggs with cold water and some salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and then turn off heat. Let eggs sit in hot water for 11 minutes and then run in cold water for easier peeling. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  2. Make creamy herb dressing - Peel garlic. Combine garlic, yogurt, cooking oil, lemon juice, and dill and blend until smooth using an immersion blender or food processor. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)

  3. Tomatoes / Corn (if using fresh) / Lettuce - Prep as directed. Tomatoes and corn can be stored together. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)

  4. Bread - Heat oven to 400F / 204C degrees. Tear or slice bread into bite-sized pieces. Spread bread out on a sheet pan and toss with olive oil. Season with some salt. Transfer bread to oven and toast, shaking the pan halfway through cooking, until golden brown and crisp.

Dressing had way too much garlic and was spicy and kind of yucky. Use a smaller clove or garlic powder next time!

Tasty, but we had to somewhat thin the dressing and add salt to cut the strong garlic flavor. Used diced pancetta to save time on prep. A sprinkle of salt and pepper over the final salads made a HUGE difference in flavor.
