Cobb Salad

I know you all know how to make salad.  I won't give you step by step pictures showing you how to cook chicken or chop tomatoes.  I will, however, tell you that this is an awesome salad, with a lot of flavor and variety.  It has a good amount of protein and healthy fat and will keep you full.  Also, you get to eat bacon.

In the mix:
Greens
Chopped tomato
Avocado
Chicken - sauteed in olive oil with salt and pepper
Bacon
Hard Boiled Egg
Blue Cheese

A tip for cooking hard boiled eggs.  Put the uncooked eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water by about an inch.  Bring to a boil, covered.  When boiling, allow to cook for 1 minute and then turn off the heat.  Set the timer for 15 minutes and leave them alone.  After 15 minutes, immerse the eggs in a bowl of ice water until cool - just a few minutes.  Peel under running water.

This was definitely not a five minute lunch, but it was so good it was worth it!

  1. What kind of dressing did you put on yours, Annie?

  2. @*jackie* I made a creamy peppercorn dressing, but I think it would work with just a simple vinegarette if you wanted something a little lighter.
