Filling and delicious cobb salad is the perfect high protein lunch on busy days.
Cobb salad is probably one of the best salads ever devised. It combines wonderfully flavourful and hearty ingredients that really make this salad a meal on its own.
Packed with protein from the two types of meat, cheese and egg, this salad has everything to keep an active body moving for the entire day.
Top this delicious salad with my thousand island dressing. It really boosts the flavours of this salad and adds an entirely new dimension. It combines really well with the flavour of the blue cheese and ties everything together.
(Makes 2 servings)
2 eggs, hardboiled and sliced
2 strips chicken bacon, cooked and diced
1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked and diced
4 cups Romaine lettuce, chopped)
1 cup Roma tomatoes, diced (or cherry tomatoes, halved)
1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 small avocado, sliced
pinch ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400°F / 200°C. Place chicken breasts into a small casserole dish with 1/2 cup of water. Cover with a lid, or foil, and cook for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer the chicken breasts to a plate and allow to cool to room temperature before covering and placing in the refrigerator until completely cold.
While the chicken is chilling, hard-boil the eggs and prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Cut the cold chicken breasts into bitesize cubes and slice the hardboiled eggs.
Divide the ingredients across 2 individual salad bowls beginning with a bed of Romain lettuce, then arrange the rest of the ingredients on top. Serve with my thousand island dressing.
