I intended to call this a Cobb salad, but unfortunately, when I asked my friend Mr. Wikipedia what ingredients were in a Cobb salad, he responded; “A good way to remember the components is to use the acronym EAT COBB: Egg, Avocado, Tomato, Chicken, Onion, Bacon, Blue cheese”. Although this is a handy way to remember the ingredients, the first one on the list still gives me the creeps, and I am missing quite a few of the other ingredients.
I have been teaching myself to eat eggs over the past year. Yes, teaching. My entire life I hated them; the smell, the look, and most of all, the rubbery texture, it gives gave gives me the creeps. However, I know how good they are for me, and therefore I forcing myself to eat them, over and over, in the hope that eventually I will like them. At first I would stare at the fork with the rubbery, yellowy, mixture as if I was eating a live bug. I have to say, it is working. I made myself scrambled eggs for the first time the other day, with plenty of vegetables to limit the egg input, but I am getting there. ANYWAY, back to the point, I will never be am not quite ready to try them boiled…..or in my salads.
I therefore created my own chopped salad, with lots of healthy goodies, and decided to top it with a slightly adapted version of this mouthwatering copycat dressing from California Pizza Kitchen to make it especially delicious.
Colorful, clean, and crunchy!
