With all of the beautiful colors in spring, life just screams for something colorful and exciting. I can never get enough of the gorgeous blooming trees this time of the year. You come outside and you just want to live and enjoy life!
Speaking of colorful, I made this beautiful Cobb Salad couple days ago and I think the color palette of this salad echoes my mood today, happy and colorful! All these flavors are just so awesome!
Here’s a little history lesson- Cobb salad has been around since 1930′s some say, and it’s a main dish American salad that always consists of Egg, Avocado, Tomato, Chicken, Onion, Bacon and Blue cheese. There’s many spins on this salad, where some add beans, or corn to it, others add olives, but most of the time it will be the 7 mentioned above.
I replaced the Blue Cheese with shredded cheddar, but you can use any kind of cheese you have on hand. I make my own dressing for salads, so I serve this salad with buttermilk dressing which is lower in calories, but high in flavor from all the seasonings I use. It’s definitely not a low-calorie salad, but definitely better than pasta with sauce would be, so splurge, but not too often
