MUSCLE BUILDING COBB SALAD

 

  • Cooking Time: 10
  • Servings: 1
  • Preparation Time: 20

Ingredients

  • 2 cups romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 strip of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 1 soft boiled egg, halved
  • 1 hanger steak (4oz) grilled and sliced thinely against the grain (can substitute any other steak - I use the ribeyes I always have on hand and then use the rest for protein steak bite snacks)
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved (I've also used campari tomatoes)
  • 1/2 avacado, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup sugar or snap peas, steamed 2 minutes, halved on the diagonal
  • 1 Tbsp Annie's Green Goddess dressing (You can also make a nice dressing from scratch with egg yolks, champagne vinegar and anchoives if you're adventuresome.)

Directions

  • Pretty much self explanitory above.
  • Steam the sugar peas for two minutes then plunge into ice water to keep the bright green colour and stop the cooking. Pat dry on paper towel before halving.
  • Soft boil the egg. Actually needs to be medium soft or you can't slice and keep the yolk looking nice so I suggest 3 1/2 - 4 minutes. Remove from the water and running cold water over it to stop it cooking. Remove shell and then half.
  • Grill the steak to medium or medium rare depending on preference.
  • Place romaine on bottom and then arrange steak, egg, cherry tomatoes, avacado and sugar peas on top.
  • Crumble blue cheese over top.
  • Spread chopped bacon over the top.
  • Drizzle dressing over the top.

Notes

Saw this in Men's Health and just had to try it because it has everything in it that I love.
