                                          • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
                                          • Place eggs in an extra-large pot. Add water until there is 1” of water above the eggs. Place on the stove on medium-high heat. Bring to a boil. Remove eggs from heat. Cover. Let eggs stand in hot water for 12 minutes to hard-boil the eggs. Wash hands after touching uncooked eggs.
                                          • While eggs are cooking, prepare an ice bath. Place ice and water in a bowl. Set aside.
                                          • When eggs are done cooking, carefully remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon. Place eggs in the ice bath for 10 minutes.
                                          • Peel eggs. Cut into quarters. Set aside.
                                          • To make salad dressing: In a small bowl, combine oil, vinegar, honey, and salt. Whisk to blend.
                                          • In a large bowl, combine spinach, cranberries, and sunflower seeds. Add dressing. Toss. If not serving immediately, store salad, eggs, and dressing separately in the refrigerator at 40 °F or lower to prevent salad from wilting.
                                          • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
                                          • Serve 1⅓ cup salad with 4 egg quarters. Serve immediately, or keep cold at 40 °F or lower.
