Do you ever have those days where you ate a whole container of cinnamon rolls by yourself first thing in the morning? Yeah, don’t lie, we’ve all been there. Or maybe just the opposite — you are on a health kick, feeling super motivated and no jar of cookies will tempt you. Either way, this salad is the perfect dinner for you. My apple cobb salad is loaded with nutritious veggies and fruits to help alleviate some guilt and get you feeling good. It also has generous servings of chicken, bacon, and eggs to build your muscles and help you feel full. This is not the light salad that you have on the side of your main course that you eat only because you feel like you have to. It is the main course. Sure its loaded, but that’s what makes it taste good. So enjoy a giant serving of this salad tonight and rest assured that even with all the fixin’s, its all good!

If your chicken is frozen, begin thawing. Start boiling your eggs. Begin cooking your bacon. I cook mine on my George Foreman Grill.
While your eggs are boiling and bacon cooking, chop your romaine and rinse.
I use a salad spinner to wash and dry my salads because my least favorite part of making a salad is trying to wash and dry lettuce leaves and no one likes a soggy salad. This device makes washing produce a breeze!
Once your bacon is done cooking begin grilling your thawed chicken. By now your eggs have probably started to boil and you can turn off the stove.
Chop your carrots and apple.
Assembly time! Divide your lettuce between two large dinner plates. Add the chopped carrots and apple. Slice up your cooked chicken. Crumble your bacon. Peel and slice your eggs. Top with almonds, cheese, and dressing.
Until next time!
