Salads aren’t just good in the summer — they’re delicious all year long! One of my favorite things about a Cobb Salad is the additional texture you get from the hard-boiled eggs, avocados, bacon, cucumbers, and bleu cheese. Any sliced chicken can be used for this salad but if you’re in a pinch, check with the deli of your local grocery store about pre-cooked breast pieces.

This Cobb salad is healthy and filling without being overly heavy. I always feel satisfied when enjoying one for lunch. They don’t give me that late-afternoon sluggish feeling that leaves me in need of a nap. I have a sensitivity to tomatoes (which are usually included in a Cobb salad); but if you want to add them, feel free to!
