California Cobb Salad – Loaded with avocado, bacon, chicken and feta for a light & delish dinner! |

I’m not a major salad girl, but I always make the mistake of ordering them at the wrong places! Pizza joint? Salad, please. Steakhouse? Bowl of greens for one. They’re never good and I always end up salivating over hubby’s cheesy slice or juicy steak. But I feel good about myself as it’s going down, no matter how awful it tastes!

That’s why I love making salad at home – It’s easy, cheap and I can unload all my favorite ingredients on it… so it will definitely be delish! Ehhh, maybe not entirely healthy, but there are greens in there…

I like to use spinach instead of Romaine for my cobb salads because it’s much more flavorful and chock full o’ good vitamins and nutrients. Also, instead of blue cheese I opt for feta, but use blue if it calls to you!
