I don’t know what happened in the last year, but I became a serious bacon lover. I now crave a BLT Cobb salad every few weeks! The salty and smoky bacon with the fresh veggies, chicken, hard-boiled eggs and a creamy pesto dressing is a dream combination. Also, can we just appreciate the colors of the salad? It’s so stunning and photo-worthy! It really tastes as good (and even better than it looks!).
If you’re doing Whole30, this salad is one of those meals that you would eat and be obsessed with without even realizing it’s “compliant.” I absolutely love it when that happens because it reminds me that cutting out all the required things from Whole30 doesn’t have to be a dramatic, flavorless experience. I think you’ll love it so much you’ll eat it either way!
Speaking of Whole30, how’s everyone’s experience going so far if you’re doing it? I am so excited to be doing the challenge with friends and family this year again.
The salad definitely has many components, but it’s so worth it to assemble ahead of time. Also, if you’re meal prepping along with this you can use the bacon for breakfast, have a hard-boiled egg on the go, eat chicken with veggies for another meal, use the dressing for another bowl. Mix and match with whatever else you happen to have in your fridge and pantry! I think you’re going to love it so much you’ll be eating it for lunch everyday this week.
Love food. Love self. Love life.
