This Cobb Salad with chicken and avocado is one of my recent discoveries when it comes to chicken salads. It's more nutritious, but, at the same time, it is colorful, healthy, beautiful and interesting. In the steps below you will find the classic Cobb Salad recipe, with its most famous combination. It's worth trying this one first.
I will also give other Cobb Salad versions, suitable for any taste, including a vegetarian one.
In any Cobb Salad, what stays the same is the layer of salad greens and after that you can add any other combinations you like: tomatoes, any type of yellow cheese, grated carrots, bacon, ham/chicken pastrami, grilled or roasted meat, red/green onions, corn, red beans, chickpeas, pepper, cucumber, eggs etc.
I've also seen vegetarian Cobb Salad recipes which were using ingredients like: tofu, chickpeas, peanuts, almonds, cashew, any type of salad greens, strawberries/blackberries/blackcurrants, mandarin slices, pineapple, dried apricots/cranberries/apples etc.
Isn't that great? It not only looks good, but you can also mix whatever you want depending on your taste, likes and menu - the classic version, the vegetarian, the low-carb, according to your inspiration and what's in the fridge.
