Paleo Snobb Salad

A Cobb salad is a staple on most American dining menus. Thankfully it’s easy to translate to a paleo friendly choice. I call this the “Snobb” salad because of having to adjust it while ordering at a restaurant. You know, when you sound like some health snob cause you need to alter the dish so much. However, once you remove the cheese it ends up being¬†relatively paleo. The dressing is what you have to watch out for because ranch or bleu cheese is a no-no. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

Ingredients:

  • romaine and baby kale mix
  • 1/4 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • 4 slices of turkey (or leftover turkey/chicken)
  • 3 slices of bacon
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/4 red onion

My deli meat and bacon are always nitrate free and I look for words like “hormone/antibiotic free”, “uncured” or I check the ingredients to be sure that sugar, if any, is less than 2%.

Directions:

Roll the turkey slices and cut by 1 inch spaces while rolled. Chop or crumble the bacon. Thinly slice some onion. Roughly chop the lettuce.

Add lettuce to a bowl. Lightly drizzle your favorite dressing. Then toss the lettuce and kale only. Add all the Cobb yummies on top.
