  1. 1. Arrange bread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet; lightly coat bread cubes with cooking spray. Place baking sheet in oven while preheating to 350°. Bake bread cubes 12 minutes or until firm. Remove from oven, and cool on a wire rack 2 minutes.
  2. 2. While bread cubes bake, cut eggs in half lengthwise; remove and reserve 3 yolks for another use. Chop remaining egg whites and yolks.
  3. 3. Combine chopped egg, salad greens, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Add bread cubes; toss gently. Divide salad evenly on each of 5 plates. Combine dressing and cheese in a small bowl. Drizzle evenly over each salad; toss well. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
