The Cobb may be the most classic of salads, and it’s got staying power beyond the Country Club scene.

From its inception, after all, it was filled with vegetables, from a big bed of romaine to tomatoes, red onions, and avocado.

The trick to making it nutritious is carefully choosing your proteins. Turkey and ham from the deli counter, for example, usually fall into the category of processed meats, cured using nitrates, compounds that can wreak havoc on your health. Try using fresh meats, instead, or buy uncured, organic cold cuts. If you can also get organic, grass-fed cheddar, even better.

The Cobb’s a classic because it’s a delicious crowd-pleaser, and it definitely delivers a nice combo of protein, veggies, and healthy fats. Since it’s got so many ingredients, we also love to make this to clean out the crisper or using leftovers. After Thanksgiving, for instance, here’s one more thing you can do with that turkey.
