The Perfect Cobb Salad


I constantly get a Cobb salad at a local restaurant I love and wanted to replicate it.  The thought of avocado + bacon added to anything makes me happy.  Although this salad is high in fat, it's also high in protein and mostly good fats and I swap out regular bacon with uncured turkey bacon.  I also top with this homemade honey mustard dressing and I skip the cheese as well to keep the recipe healthier.





Ingredients:
  • Romaine lettuce
  • 1 avocado (cut into thin strips)
  • 3 strips uncured turkey bacon
  • 1 hard boiled egg  (sliced)
  • 1/2 cup roasted corn (optional)
Directions:  In medium pan, heat 1 tsp oil (olive or coconut oil) & cook bacon until crispy.  Cut into small pieces.  Set aside.  Boil 1 egg, peel and set aside to cool.   Slice hard boiled egg once cooled.  Place lettuce in large salad bowl and toss with avocado, bacon pieces, egg, and optional roasted corn.  (I had left-over corn so I cooked in a pan until crispy and it added a delicious southwest taste!)  Add salt & paper to taste and dressing of choice.  I personally love this honey mustard recipe. Enjoy!
