Today we are talking about the DREAMIEST and all-American Cobb Salad! It only gets better if you STILL have Easter-eggs sitting in the fridge from almost a week ago… This is why we’re friends! 😉

Hey Hi Hello! TGIF! Happy April Fools’ Day! I have nothing to fool you with because I ain’t that clever. Besides, it’s been a Spring-break type of week around here and I am over and done with things like, “MOM! I’m bored!” “MOOOOM! She hit me!” “MOM! What does the “S” word mean?”  

…I’m just tired, yo. AND it rained all week. We had a full two hours of bike rides over the span of 5 days. Not cool, mother nature, not cool.

On the bright side, I made a bunch of Cobb Salad wraps and we all lived happily ever after for an entire 7 minutes during grub-time! 

Say what? You don’t roll your cobb salad in a wrap?! Why NOT?! Ugh… Well. Now you will! 😉 Just lots of delicious flavors packed into a teeny roll.

Cobb Salad happens to be my favorite main dish salad, and that’s a lot to say because I make lots of salads. However, the Cobb has some of my favorite ingredients: chicken, bacon, egg, tomatoes, blue cheese and avocado, to name a few… or all.

Also, when made on the fly, it can be the best solution to a bunch of leftovers, making it a really filling and insanely flavorful lunch/snack/dinner.

The best part? The dressing! It’s not a buttermilk-dressing, as the classic should be, but it is made with plain non-fat yogurt + blue cheese + white vinegar, and it tastes ah.may.zing!

A Cobb salad may sound like a healthier option, but more often than not, it’s loaded with calories. Chock full of bacon, cheese, and fatty dressing, you can easily eat up half your recommended calories for the day in just one sitting, especially if you don’t pay attention to the serving-size. But, with a few swaps, this lightened up version hits all the notes you love about the classic and it tastes great! I promise.

Moral of the story is that this is the perrrrfect salad-meal, especially when you’re stuck with a bunch of hard boiled eggs and it’s raining out. I don’t even know how those two things go together, but it’s a thing. Yes, it is. Let’s eat.

ENJOY!

    I made this salad this evening and it was very good except the dressing. I followed the ingredients and instructions except I used Greek yogurt and all I could taste was the olive oil with a tart/wang after flavor. I ended up just using regular blue cheese dressing . Would the Greek yogurt make such a difference?

    1. Hi! I think the yogurt did make a difference. I could be wrong! Maybe this dressing just isn’t in your taste? I personally don’t like Greek yogurt and hardly use it at all because of that tangy, soury taste. Plain yogurt is sweeter and the flavor is mild, nowhere near as strong as Greek yogurt.
