The classic cobb salad made healthier and way more flavorful!
  • For the salad:
  • 3 slices nitrate-free turkey bacon best brands are Applegate or Trader Joe's
  • 8 cups coarsely chopped romaine lettuce*
  • 2 large hard-boiled eggs chilled and quartered
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken breast or shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/3 cup diced peeled avocado
  • 2 large garden fresh tomatoes cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • For the avocado dressing:
  • 1/2 cup diced peeled avocado
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • 3 tablespoons water + more as needed for desired consistency
  1. Cook bacon in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan to cool and once cooled, dice.
  2. While bacon is cooking; prepare dressing by combining all 7 dressing ingredients in a food processor or blender; process until smooth.
  3. Arrange 2 cups romaine on each of 4 plates. Divide bacon, eggs, chicken, avocado, tomatoes and cheese evenly among plates. Drizzle about 3 tablespoons dressing over each salad. Alternatively, you can toss all ingredients in a large salad bowl and then evenly divide into 4 servings and drizzle about 3 tablespoons dressing over each salad.
Recipe Notes

*Feel free to use a mixture of your favorite greens, such as 4 cups romaine with 4 cups baby spinach. My rule of thumb for serving salad is 2 heaping cups of chopped greens per person.
**Avocado dressing from Cooking Light.
