Kid Cobb Salad: Don't let the name fool you

I found this recipe at Atascocita Branch Library, where I worked in Texas, in an old parenting magazine. And we used to eat it a lot when we lived in Houston but it fell off the menu list when the kids came around (something about lettuce that kids don't, at first, understand). We had it on Saturday night and I remembered why we loved, loved, loved it. So, here you go:

1 head of romaine, chopped
1/2 cup of carrots, chopped
1 large avocado, chopped
1 cup roasted turkey breast, chopped (we used Tofurkey)
2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
1 cup shredded cheese (any type)
4 strips of crumbled bacon (we usually leave this out)
Ranch dressing

And while it doesn't sound like much, it's surprisingly filling and yummy.

  1. Funny - I had a Cobb Salad on Saturday for the first time in AGES and loved it. Mine had grilled chicken on top though...and there was enough yum in there that I skipped the salad dressing.
