Cobb salads are usually loaded with fixings, but this edited version still has the basic flavors, like zesty dressing, greens and bacon, without packing on the calories from too many toppings. If you wish to add more protein to this dish, opt for 1 cup diced, cooked chicken, 2 cooked pastured-raised eggs, or 1 cup cooked lentils.
- 6 slices of bacon
- 6 ounces baby kale
- 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
- 1 cup canned chickpeas
- ¼ cup olives, any kind
- 1/2 cup kale-onaise or good quality blue cheese dressing
Chop the bacon and cook it according to the package instructions. Set aside to drain on a paper towel. Place the kale, tomatoes, chickpeas, olives and kale-onaise or blue cheese dressing. Sprinkle with the bacon and toss well. Serve immediately.
