I am the first to admit that I am not a big salad fan. I enjoy Taco Salad, but if I have the choice I would rather have a sandwich. However, Mr. H mentioned making a Cobb salad the other day, and I thought it sounded pretty delicious. I happened to have all of the essentials in my fridge, so for lunch today, I whipped this up just like Martha Stewart.
My ingredients included:
one head of lettuce, 3 boiled eggs, half a bag of Tyson pre-cooked chicken slices, 3 Roma tomatoes, an avocado, and bacon-o's (also croutons, but I didn't want them to get soggy, so I added them when it was served).
The reason the lettuce is all over the place is because I am a little obsessed about clean lettuce. I have been trying to save money, so I've been shopping at Aldi, which does not sell organic lettuce. Therefore, my lettuce process involves chopping it up, putting it a large ziploc freezer bag, filling the bag with water AND vegetable cleaner, rinsing, laying it out and blotting the water up with paper towel. I know...the process seems pretty time consuming, but I feel much better about rinsing off some pesticides.
I can't live without my Veggie Wash. Again, when I'm too cheap to buy organic, I feel like this at least helps a little bit. Right?
And the finished product...
I swear I did put some lettuce underneath.
