Because Sometimes You Just Need a Cobb Salad
And this was one of those days. It was Saturday, late-morning, and already fixin' to be a scorcher of a day. Rather than fill up on rich, lethargy-inducing carbs like french toast, we decided to fix a brunch-tastic, energy-packed cobb salad.
It's always a fun (and money-saving) challenge to use what you already have. So, while our cobb salads certainly tipped their hats to the traditional recipe, we focused on what was in the fridge.
Here's what we had:
- hearts of romaine lettuce, chopped
- fresh spinach
- bacon, chopped
- hard boiled eggs, chopped
- cooked chicken thighs, chopped
- cheese, shredded
- your choice of dressing (I used blue cheese)
Toss lettuce and spinach in the dressing of your choice, and top with remaining ingredients. Then, commence eating. It doesn't get any simpler than that!
What's in your fridge these days? Any fun salads in your future?
