Healthy Cobb Salad with Protein Ranch Dressing

Healthy Cobb Salad

I love taking a classic meal and putting a healthy twist on it. The classic Cobb salad can have over 800 calories with over 40 grams of fat, but with a little tweaking you can slash those numbers in half and leave you with a guilt free meal.

 

Today, varieties of the classic Cobb salad are served in restaurants worldwide. It mainly contains iceberg lettuce, tomato, bacon, chicken breast, hard-boiled egg, avocado and Roquefort cheese. As more and more people are becoming calorie conscious, various varieties are prepared and presented as low calorie varieties. Try out TheFittChick version for a healthy dinner that will leave you eating more and weighing less!
