This is a healthier take on one of my favorite salads, the traditional Cobb. Cobb Salads typically have some not-so-healthy ingredients like bacon and blue cheese which are very acidic to the body. I decided to omit the blue cheese and bacon and substituted some yummy and flavorful cooked veggies in their place.
If there is one thing that I see universally, it’s that most people do not get enough Kartal escort alkalinity from vegetables and greens on a daily basis. By far, as a nation we are overly acidic! As a rule, I always try to have at least 1-2 servings of veggies at each meal. It’s crucial to weight loss and overall health.
I love salads like this during the colder months. It is absolutely FREEZING here in Texas, as it has been in most parts of the country. On these chilly days a raw salad just doesn’t sound appetizing. The roasted and cooked veggies, warm rotisserie chicken and hard boiled eggs in this dish make this salad stick to your ribs and feel more like comfort food!
I tend to be a little lazy with my cooking as many of you know, so even though this dish turned out beautifully, it’s really just a bunch of leftovers! As always, feel free to copy these recipes precisely or use what you already have on hand.
- I used a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from my local health food store. Costs about the same and is SO MUCH easier than doing it yourself!
- I made these roasted root veggies earlier in the week according to this recipe and found inspiration on pinterest using this recipe for zucchini and corn (I omitted the cheese and added extra pepper!).
- For the hard boiled eggs (which I rarely make because they always come out terribly wrong) I used this recipe from Martha Stewart. And for the first time in my life, they came out perfectly cooked!!
For the base of your Paleo Kale Cobb Salad you can use any greens you like: spinach, romaine, arugula, swiss chard, kale, watercress, you name it!
I used kale and tossed it with my favorite Garlic Expressions salad dressing and a drizzle of siracha for extra kick! Then layered it with chopped grape tomatoes, a sliced hard boiled egg, shredded rotisserie chicken, roasted root veggies, and cooked zucchini with corn.
Healthy meals like this are such a great way to re-purpose your leftovers! Have fun trying different combos and let me know what you come up with!
