Cobb Salads are generally pretty heavy, so we went on a mission to lighten up the recipe.
First, it’s about making sure the proportion of ingredients is weight heavily towards vegetables over meat.
Next, instead of a heavy, oily dressing, we use just a touch of balsamic and lemon, which works, here, since you’re already getting so much flavor from the bacon, egg, and avocado.
Just be sure to look for better bacon that hasn’t been cured using nitrates. Better yet, try making this amazing vegan bacon.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Egg and bacon provide protein for energy and keeping you full after the meal. Avocado provides healthy fats and creamy texture (which makes it easier to skip the cheese). The Romaine, cucumbers, tomatoes, and carrots all add crunch and a long list of vitamins and other phytonutrients.
