I love Cobb salads, but they are so unhealthy. The whole salad thing stops being a healthy dish when you start jamming it full of bacon and egregious amounts of blue cheese. Don’t get me wrong I love both of those things, but sometimes it’s good to eat cleaner and healthier.
Healthy eating requires dedication, making better choices and altering what you normally love to consume. I subtract many of the unhealthy items like the bacon and blue cheese in favor of extra chicken and more avocado. Increasing the intake of clean proteins and good fats like olive oil and avocado can not only help burn body fat, but boost energy levels as well.
Lets start making this this salad!
Make the hard boiled eggs by placing them in a sauce pan covered by 2 inches of cold water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 1 minute then turn off and leave them in the water for 10 minutes. Place in ice bath. Add 1 tbs of balsamic vinegar to a mixing bowl. Whisk in 1/8 cup of olive oil then season with salt and pepper. Add the greens, 1/2 the chicken and mix thoroughly. Serve topped with the rest of the chicken, eggs and avocado.
