Deconstructed Cobb Salad

img_5358

This recipe came together for a dinner party I hosted a couple weeks ago. In an effort to please all the tastes in the room, provide a filling and healthy dinner and make it fun (it is always fun when you get to assemble your own meal!), the Deconstructed Cobb Salad came about!

The ingredients below are some of my favourites, but there is a ton of room for variety and personal expression in this recipe. As there is low starch on the menu for this one, be sure to include enough protein to fill up your guests! This recipe serves 6-8 people.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place a pot of water on the stove to boil for the eggs.
  2. Bake chicken breasts in the oven on a cookie sheet for 25-30 minutes. I seasoned mine with greek seasoning, but you could also use a BBQ a prepare chicken any way you like.
  3. While chicken is baking, cook the entire package of bacon in a frying pan on medium heat. Once cooked to desired crispiness, use a paper towel to blot off extra fat and let bacon cool.
  4. Place eggs in water once it comes to a boil and cook for 8-10 minutes depending on whether you want medium or hard boiled eggs. Immediately run eggs under cold water after boiling, let cool and peel.
  5. Chop spinach and kale and place in a large bowl. Chop red onion into thin slices and place in a separate small bowl (this works well for those who do not love onions) Slice boiled eggs or cut in half and place in a separate serving dish. Do the same with the bacon chopped into bite-size pieces. Display parmesan cheese on the table as well. When chicken is done, let cool and then slice the breasts into thin pieces.
Recipe Notes

For the dressing, I simply served olive oil and balsamic reduction and let the guests dress their own salad. You could also whip up a balsamic vinaigrette to place on the table.

Have fun with this one!
