Recipe of the Week: Healthy and Hearty Cobb Salad!


My Healthy and Hearty Version of Cobb Salad-
with Homemade Greek Yogurt Dressing




Guys! I am sitting here stuffed (off of a salad) as I write this. This is one of my favorite salad combinations in addition to the one I posted last week. It is chock full of healthy fats (avocado- I usually only use half of one in this salad), protein (chicken thigh, low-fat cheese, greek yogurt, and hard-boiled egg), and carbs (carrots, spring mix, and cherry tomatoes). I piled all these ingredients up into a large bowl and savored every bite I could. This power combo was so satisfying that I acutally couldn't finish the whole thing! Very filling- but not in a "I'm so stuffed, I feel gross kind of way."

Last year, while living in Los Angeles, I took a cooking class on Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution campaign trucks and one of the things we learned to make was a homemade greek yogurt salad dressing. The original recipe called for anchovies and garlic, but I decided to pass on those and the dressing was still equally delicious! 

Serve this up with your favorite side of bread (or not) and Bon Appetit!

He is a major advocate for more cooking at home, freshly cooked meals at schools, cooking in the community, and much more. He's received a lot of resistance, but he's still going strong and he recently visited Sacramento this past January.
