Cobb Salad

My Favorite Cobb Salad


Cobb Salad

I received this Cobb Salad as a fresh meal for our Freezer Club this week. It is colorful, complex in flavor and texture, and a crowd-pleaser. Hope you enjoy this easy and healthy recipe!

In case you’re wondering about the “fresh meal” concept…each round of Freezer Club, we try to have one person prepare a fresh (not frozen) meal so we can eat it right away.  We’ve made lots of different salads and this Chicken Penne Pasta with Asparagus and Peppers as a fresh meal, as well. These allow for more variety in our monthly menu.

Here’s how we deliver our fresh meal to our Freezer Club friends. You’ll notice we used ham instead of bacon this time.

This is hands-down my favorite Cobb Salad! The dressing is simple to make yet complex in flavor. You MUST try it!

This color salad is complex in flavor and texture and a crowd-pleaser. Enjoy this easy and healthy recipe!
