Yummmm.  You know who’s a true salad-lover?  My mom, Shelly.  I remember her eating salads all the way back to the earliest childhood memories I have.  She passed the same love onto me, however, I don’t eat salads NEARLY as often as she does.

And I’m probably not as healthy as her either since I like them with all the fatty good stuff.  That’s why Cobb is my favorite type of salad, and will remain the champion.  It’s a great excuse to have ham or chicken, hard-boiled eggs, avocado.. BACON…..

I mean, it has it all!  Cobb Salad is the best!

I ❤ Larry David. 🙂

So here’s another low-cal meal prep I worked up.  I used my recipe for Perfect Baked Chicken Breast and made a delicious Cobb salad in bulk to fill my cute little ceramic lunch containers.  This recipe makes five lunch sized servings.

Note:  Cherry or grape tomatoes are a great substitution for tomatoes on the vine.

I don’t really have instructions to give you since I didn’t “cook” the salad.  You just kind of throw it into a bowl and well…. you know.  Eat it.  🙂

While I’m here I’d like to take another opportunity to advocate for Hidden Valley Fat Free Ranch Dressing.  It is SO GOOD.  I can’t believe there’s only 30 calories in two tablespoons.

Another Note:  To prevent the avocado from browning, either add it to the salad right before consumption, or dress the avocado in lime juice in advance (which helps prevent browning).  I prefer to add the avocado to the salad just before consumption, but do whatever works best for you!

 

Chicken Cobb Salad (low-cal meal prep)

  • 1 large head Romaine Lettuce, rough chopped about 5 cups
  • 5 cups Perfect Baked Chicken Breast
  • 5 hard-boiled Eggs
  • 1 large Avocado, diced
  • 2 medium Tomatoes, sliced
  • 5 tablespoons Hormel Real Crumbled Bacon
  • Hidden Valley Fat Free Ranch Dressing

Bake the chicken according to the recipe (click for link).  Assemble the salad in five separate containers dispersing the avocado and tomato evenly between containers.  Keep the ranch on the side until consumption.

Enjoy xoxo!!
