Who doesn’t like the Classic Cobb Salad? A little bit of lettuce mix, bacon, eggs, bleu cheese, avocadoes, tomatoes, chicken & red onions. Well I’ve strayed from the “traditional” and paved a new way for the Classic Cobb Salad. I love thinking of new way to improvise my lunch for work so I don’t become bored and stray to the unhealthy. I decided to make the Classic Cobb Salad in a freezer bag. One of my co-workers gave me the idea a few years back but I just used the idea tonight ;). It’s quick, easy and delicious. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve made Cobb Salad before but never this way, never in a way that took away the bowls and containers. I believe that Ziploc bags can be your best friend, if you treat them right ;).
What You Will Need:
-1 gallon freezer bag
-Handful of spinach (or any type of greens mix you’d like – I also know that arugula would go well with this!)
-2 hard boiled eggs
-2 pieces of cooked (in the oven) turkey bacon
-A few crumbled pieces of mozzarella cheese
-Half a cooked chicken breast (cooked and seasoned any way you’d like – I cooked mine in the oven and use a Mrs. Dash seasoning, the night befo
-A few mushrooms (I prefer baby bellas)
-Finely chopped pieces of red onions
-Juice from 1 lemon
(I opted out of using tomatoes because I cannot have them due to my stomach issues and I am not a fan of avocados. But feel free to keep tomatoes and avocados in!)
Classic Cobb Salad:
Rinse the spinach, mushrooms, cucumber (cut into bite sized pieces) and onions (finely chopped) off and place into freezer bag.
Peel and cut up boiled eggs into bite sized pieces and place into freezer bag. Take the yolk out of one and leave the yolk in one
Cut up half of chicken breast and then crumble mozzarella cheese and put chicken and cheese into freezer bag.
Squeeze juice of 1 lemon into salad mixture in freezer bag.
Shake mixture around in freezer bag and place in fridge overnight.
*Lunch time the next day, you can eat out of bag or place on plate or bowl. As for the dressing I have my favorite – Cucumber Ranch. But oil & vinegar would be excellent on this as well! But feel free to use your favorite type of dressing.
