Cobb Salad

Now that the weather has warmed up we've been eating a little lighter and more fresh veggies. I saw this salad over at Healthy Happy Life and decided to make it last weekend. I did make a few changes which are listed below in bold, but I have to give all the credit Kathy for the inspiration behind this awesome salad.
  • I used 1/2 spinach and a small head of chopped Romaine lettuce, tossed
  • 1 can Mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1/3 cup sliced black olives
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, chopped and tossed with black pepper
  • 1 avocado, chopped - tossed with the juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • NO bacon anything
  • 1 can chilled kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can hearts of palm, sliced and divided in half- tossed half with 1/8 teaspoon turmeric + 1 teaspoon olive oil + 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar + 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast.
I followed Kathy's recipe as directed EXCEPT I didn't dress the salad until we had put our helpings on the plate. We then added a Kraft Olive Oil Vinaigrette to each plate as desired.

This was so filling, fast and delicious!! Go check out her site, you won't be sorry!
