Chopped Salad Recipe With Sausage

What can be a better low-carb lunch than a chopped salad?  In this chopped salad recipe, I use sausage slices for the protein (in addition to eggs)!  If you are tired of eating salads with chicken breast, try using sausage instead, it will be a nice change 🙂

I use low-fat sausage, so the salad stays healthy.  Fresh and crisp salad greens are mixed with chopped eggs, cucumbers and tomatoes, tossed with Italian dressing and topped with sausage slices.  Yum!

I made this salad when I had one sausage left over from the last night’s dinner 🙂  Those sausages were yummy low-fat Italian turkey sausages that were baked in the oven (see roasted Italian sausage recipe).  If you don’t have any sausage leftovers, you can use pre-cooked deli sausages like Polish kielbasa!
