Cobb Salad

June 4, 2012

By:  Maria

With the warmer temps, it’s easy to find the motivation to get outdoors and get active.  My motivation to spend time over a hot stove, however, decreases.  No problem!  I still get plenty of good nutrition by loading up my plate with essentials.  I love having different salads on the menu each week during the summer and enjoy loading them up with tasty ingredients (salads should never be boring and they should always leave you perfectly satisfied!).
Tip:  if you get and prep enough of the ingredients to make a couple more salads for the week and store in fridge, you will have extra meals with little effort!



3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar (or balsamic works as well)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon coconut aminos (optional)
1 small garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Mix all ingredients together and, in a large bowl, add to 6 cups roughly chopped romaine lettuce.  Toss.
For the Salad:
Grilled chicken, diced (if convenience is important, grab a rotisserie chicken – easy!)

blue cheese (optional if you are ok with dairy)
cooked bacon, diced (preferably locally sourced – if not, you can try jamon serrano from Caputo’s Market & Deli – mmmm)
avocado, diced
tomatoes, diced
hard boiled egg, crumbled

On a large plate, dump a generous amount of the romaine lettuce mixture and layer the rest of the salad ingredients in no particular order.
