It all started with a few hard boiled eggs sitting in the fridge. I didn’t want them to go to waste so I decided to make a Cobb Salad, it was the only sensible thing to do.
I’ve also been craving a salad (my Blueberry is going to be one healthy baby). I didn’t want the simple side salad you order at a restaurant, but the really good kind of salad that is full of color and fills you up.
I knew this salad was meant to be when I happened to have bacon in the fridge!!
I know this is my own recipe, but gosh damn it’s a really good salad. I’m not a huge salad lover, I prefer quinoa veggies bowls – but THIS Cobb Salad got me thinking. This may be the start of some bomb salad making.
You better make this salad and tell me ALL about it!!!
