I’m so happy to write a guest post for Wicked Good Travel. I love the blog and I’m glad we’ve become blog friends. I write The Three Bite Rule exploring food, restaurants, recipes, and anything delicious. My motto is “3 bites: 1st bite is to try, the 2nd bite is to decide, and the 3rd bite is to be sure.”
I was trying to think of a good post for someone so busy. I thought a easy but fun salad would fit into her life and how incredibly busy she is with everything in her life right now. She did an AWESOME post on her scones for me when I was up to my eyeballs with work for which I was so grateful. I can only hope to do the same.
Cobb Salad and Chef Salad united for my dinner. I went with a everything-but-the-kitchen-
We don’t eat tons of salads as dinner, so during a hot few days I took advantage of a low-cooking meal. This felt like a fun meal to serve when it is hot, or especially if you aren’t a confident chef! Serve this next time you’re the host or for a potluck and everyone will be happy.
- 2 grilled chicken breasts
- 4 hard boiled eggs
- shredded cheddar
- head Boston Bibb lettuce
- blue cheese dressing
- Fry bacon, boil eggs, and grill the chicken.
- Chop everything except the lettuce.
- Mix the “fillings” and serve in lettuce wraps.
These were really fun! I liked that there were so many interesting textures and bright flavors. I went with the normal cobb salad as though it was a chop salad. I figured if the lettuce didn’t really work, then we could always drop the toppings on a bed of lettuce. It worked well as wraps though.
It takes time to chop and prep everything but I made enough for two of us to have for dinner and then for lunch again the next day. I didn’t dress the salad so besides the avocado, it packed up well for lunch too. The only cooking was the bacon, eggs, and grilled chicken.
Croutons are such an easy item to make at home and I never buy them anymore. Whenever I do buy them they seem to disappear as snacks before they appear on many salads.
Cut some bread into squares, drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, and some grated Parmesan. Toast a few minutes on each side and voila! Croutons made-to-order!
