Mal's Cobb Salad

Mal has been en fuego in the kitchen lately! While I was at the gym, Mal threw together a hearty Cobb Salad for dinner. 

Mal's Cobb Salad was a protein powerhouse, fueled by chicken breast, hard-boiled eggs, avocado, and bacon. I'm very satisfied... even a tad on the full side! 

Mal's Cobb Salad
Makes 4 servings

6 pieces of bacon, crumbled
2 boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup red onions, chopped
1 avocado, chunked
1 hard-boiled egg
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese*

2/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

1. Top a bowl of lettuce with the chicken breast, bacon, red onion, avocado, and egg. 
2. Whisk together dressing ingredients. 
3. Dress salad, toss, and serve. 

*We forgot to add the blue cheese, but the salad was still terrific! 

The big bowl of Cobb Salad...

Mal ended up eating 2 servings, I ate one, and there is a serving leftover for my lunch tomorrow. I already added the blue cheese to it! 

My afternoon snack was Fage with Kashi Go Lean Crunch and 2 tbsp of peanut butter all stirred together. It kept me full through the afternoon and a tough workout this evening.


Just want to share this great website with you all-- is a website that helps you find recipes based on the ingredients and groceries that you already have at home. You type in the items in your refrigerator and/or pantry, and RecipeMatcher will show you what you can make. The website also helps you put together cocktails from what you have in your bar. Very cool, if you ask me.

That recipe matcher is a genius idea. Also, if you just type a bunch of stuff into google, some good things usually come up.

Cobb salad is the best kind of salad ever! I'll have to try this recipe out sometime :D

Ooo that website would be so helpful! I've never cooked for myself for an extended period of time before, so I'm going to need all the suggestions I can get X_x
