About This Cobb Salad Recipe
Salads can be seen as really boring.
But when you dress it up with chicken, bacon, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, croutons, and shredded cheese? It's definitely not boring anymore. It's packed with protein and tastiness. And a drizzle of buttermilk ranch dressing makes it even better!
That's what you'll find in this gluten-free cobb salad recipe, so your next bowl of salad doesn't have to be a boring bowl of greens!
Ingredients You Will Need For This Salad
-Greens or lettuce: I used romaine lettuce for this salad.
-Grilled chicken: I used leftover chicken we had baked the night before.
-Cooked bacon: Make sure to check the package to verify it is gluten-free.
-Shredded cheese of choice. Lately I've been on a kick for Cabot Monterey Jack. You can use Cheddar, Monterey jack, Colby, whatever you like. I prefer to shred my own cheese for better flavor. Pre-shredded cheeses have anti-caking agents that can affect the taste! But yes, they are gluten-free.
-Avocado: Self-explanatory. Gotta love avocado!
-Hard-boiled eggs: I follow this recipe and they come out perfectly every time.
-Gluten-free croutons: My favorites are Gillian's Foods.
-Gluten-free ranch dressing: Ken's is gluten-free, so I typically buy that.
-Salt & pepper: to taste
