Close your eyes… now picture this; a huge bowl, spilling over with all-things-good. We’re talking about organic beets, toasted pecans, smoky bacon, sweet apple, dried cranberries, and creamy blue cheese. Okay, now open your eyes and have a look – this cobb salad is what dreams are made of, and my all-star “good” list doesn’t even stop there! You might be thinking, “it would be hard to top this salad”, but we’ve saved the best for last. Introducing our homemade Creamy Bacon Chive Dressing, made with real bacon, chopped chives, and a touch of honey for a bit of sweetness.
3 cups chopped organic romaine salad
1 cup cooked organic beets, cut into ¼” dice
1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked or grilled
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1 organic apple, cut in ¼” dice (skin on)
¼ cup organic bacon, cooked and diced or crumbled
1/3 cup toasted pecans (whole)
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped (1/2” pieces)
¼ cup blue cheese, crumbled
Creamy Bacon Chive Dressing
2 Tbsp. cooked diced bacon
2 Tbsp. chopped chives
3 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp. Herbamare
1 tsp. honey
¼ cup hemp seeds
Place ingredients in a blender and puree
on highest speed until mixture is creamy.
Use a fancy 9” pie plate. Place lettuce in the bottom.
Cut the chicken into strips and lay this in a strip on top
of the lettuce mixture in the centre of the pie plate.
Working toward the right side of the chicken continue
to lay down strips. Place the beets next to the chicken,
then lay down a strip of the chopped egg and finish
with the toasted pecans. To the left of the chicken
place a thin strip of dried cranberries, then apple, blue
cheese and finish with the bacon. Drizzle dressing over top.
