Prep

  1. Make hardboiled 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. Roll egg against a hard, flat surface to break up shell, and then peel. If making ahead of time, peel right before serving. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Make creamy herb dressing - (Skip if dressing was made ahead on Tuesday.) Peel garlic. Combine garlic, yogurt, oil, lemon juice and cilantro leaves and blend until smooth using an immersion blender or food processor. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
  3. Deli meat / Tomatoes / Corn (if using fresh) / Romaine - Prep as directed. Tomatoes and corn can be stored together. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Corn (if using frozen) - Defrost corn in the microwave.

I used ham and added some bleu cheese crumbles. We also added lots of extra garlic to the dressing (because we like it). It was a really refreshing summer meal.
