This is a great meal for lunch or dinner because it has so much protein and you will literally be full for hours after eating it. Yes, there is fat in this salad, but the fat is coming from healthy sources like the nuts, eggs and avocado.
This recipe definitely has items in it that you may not have lying around so YES, a shopping excursion may be required, but so what? You need food anyway.
Killer Cobb Salad
- Shredded Lettuce
- 1-2 Hard Boiled Eggs
- Some Cherry Tomatoes (or a few slices of a large tomato)
- 1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts or Pecans
- A few Slices of Red Onion
- 1-2 Teaspoons Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles
- 1/2 Avocado
- 1/4 Cup Chick Peas
- Grilled Chicken (if you have it/are not a vegetarian)
- Vinaigrette of your choosing
Throw the lettuce on a plate or in a bowl. Throw 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans onto the bed of lettuce along with the cheese crumbles. Cut your avocado in half and then slice it onto your salad into thin strips.
Grab the red onion and slice a few rings off it; throw those on top too. Next, peel the shells off your eggs and cut them into quarters and throw em’ on.
If you have chicken, slice up a few strips and lay them on top. Toss in the chick peas and tomatoes next.
Use a bottled vinaigrette or make one yourself for a healthy, filling lunch/dinner!
Hard Boiled Eggs:
Place two eggs into a small sauce pan. Fill pan with just enough water to cover the eggs. Put the eggs on the stove and turn the heat on. Let the eggs boil for a few minutes (about 3-5 minutes boiling) then remove from heat and run cold water over them for at least another 5-10 minutes or until they are cold. You may now peel them under running, cold water.
