The classic Chef's Salad recipe, which includes meat and cheese, is not kosher. Fortunately, kosher cookbook author Susie Fishbein has created a kosher recipe for Chef's Salad. Susie's Kosher Chef's Salad tastes wonderful, and it makes the perfect appetizer for a Sabbath meal. Mix the salad right before the meal and serve portions on individual plates. Easy, delicious and kosher!
