CALIFORNIA COBB SALAD

cobb salad | designlovefest

there is something about summer that makes me naturally want to eat healthier. mostly because it’s hot outside and the farmer’s market is full of beautiful produce which makes me gravitate towards salads. i know it’s probably a stretch calling this a version of cobb salad but it was my inspiration so i’m sticking with it. we kept the dressing light but it would be nice with something creamy like an avocado dressing as well. and, you could use any type of greens for the base, we went with kale because it packs a heavy nutritional punch but use whatever you have on hand. if you use kale, do not forget to massage for 2-3 minutes with a little lemon and olive oil, makes a world of difference with the texture. oh, and we toasted our bread in the leftover bacon grease and we highly recommend you do it too. – joanie

    Yum! This looks SO good. I love the idea of using Cobb with Kale!

    I’ve been working with a nutritionist for the past few weeks, and basically two of my daily meals are salads. I’ve been into using the broccoli slaw from Trader Joe’s as just a whole salad, with a light peanut dressing. I also like using any kind of romaine, or butter lettuce, adding chopped almonds, apples, a peach, and lemon juice with a little salt and shredded ginger. It’s like a fruit salad, salad. So tasty!
