  3. cukes, grape tomatoes, diced radishes, apples
  4. Eggs hard boiled, peeled, cut in half 3 whole
  5. Bacon bits, pecan pieces, croutons shredded cheese As desired
  1. 1.This is where the fun begins. Place 3/4 of the lettuce in the bottom of a bowl. Toss together your choice of vegetables, sprinkle them in a circle on the outer edge of the bowl. ( leaving a least a 3-4 inch circle empty in the center, hence the nest)
  2. 2. Place the remaining lettuce over the veggies, leaving the nest in the middle.
  3. 3. Place the 6 egg halves in the nest. Garnish the upper area of the nest with your choice of bacon, nuts and cheese.
  1. Note: allow your guest to select what they like from the bowl and use their choice of dressings.
