Cobb Salad for One- Unchained Recipe Contest

Cobb Salad for One- Unchained Recipe Contest

Introduction

When I think of dinner out, I think of T.G.I. Fridays Cobb Salad. Even though it is full of healthy vegetables it is one of the most unhealthy salads on the menu becuase of it's fattening ingredients. I have created a lighter version that tastes just as great without the guilt! When I think of dinner out, I think of T.G.I. Fridays Cobb Salad.

This salad is a healthier choice and has been made much lower in fat than the restaurant version by leaving out the olives, bacon, bleu cheese crumbles, bleu cheese dressing, and cheddar cheese.

  • I think you should have included the dressing - 11/10/09

    You are right. I should have! I personally do not like blue cheese at all and wanted to leave the idea that you can have a Cobb salad with any dressing you like. Even if you add a lowfat blue cheese dressing and some bacon bits it would still be in a great calorie/fat range.

  • I love cobb salad, but somehow this wouldn't do it for me ... & that's alot of calories to come in a far cry from the real thing. - 11/10/09

    The real thing has about three times the calories and 5 times the fat. Ouch!

  • This recipe is missing all the things that make a Cobb salad a Cobb salad. I sounds yummy and I still make it though. - 11/4/09

  • I never realized I had been wanting a Cobb Salad until I saw this one listed in the contest. Will definitely give this one a try next week since the avocados are so prevalent in the store. - 11/3/09
