Chop or tear the lettuce into bite size pieces. Place lettuce on a large serving platter or into 4 individual bowls.
Arrange the tomatoes, cucumbers, eggs, cheese, and ham, like the spokes of a wheel, on top of the lettuce.
Serve the salad, passing the dressing at the table.
Cook's Note: Growing up, this salad was always served with Thousand Island dressing. As an adult, I prefer to dress it with Bleu Cheese. My kids love it with Ranch! Long story short, dress it however you like!
