Vegetarian Cobb Salad

Over the last several years I’ve worked with a number of clients coming from a highly processed diet, and this salad has been a tasty way to help them start transitioning toward a more vegetable-centric lifestyle.

It has plenty of filling and comforting toppings, like hardboiled eggs and feta cheese, but the rest of the plate is loaded with leafy greens and non-starchy vegetables. It’s a delicious way to crowd-out less desirable choices while filling up on nutrient-rich foods.

Dressed with my popular Honey Dijon Dressing, each bite of this salad is loaded with flavor. It makes an easy packed lunch for the work week, since the salad ingredients are sturdy enough to travel together in the same bowl– you’ll just need to store the dressing separately until ready to serve. I hope you enjoy it!

Vegetarian Cobb Salad
Serves 1

Ingredients:

1 romaine heart, chopped
2 hard boiled eggs*, chopped
1 ounce raw goat feta
1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1 green onion, thinly sliced

3-4 tablespoons Honey Dijon Dressing (<– recipe link)

Directions:

Assemble the salad ingredients together in a large bowl, and toss with the dresing to coat well. Serve immediately!

*Tip: For perfect hard-boiled eggs, try steaming them. Fit a steam basket into a small saucepan filled with an inch of water, and bring it to a boil. Add as many eggs as you’d like, creating a single layer in the steam basket, cover, and lower the heat. Steam for 10-12 minutes then rinse with cold water and store in the fridge until ready to use.

Mmm… The vegetarian cobb salad looks delicious! I cannot wait to try it.

Is there a particular reason (besides perfect hard-boiled eggs) that you suggest steaming eggs rather than boiling them?

    Nope, I just think it’s faster and more fool-proof. 🙂

100 stars! I never thought I’d leave a comment on such a simple salad recipe, but OMG, I actually crave this salad daily now. I’ve had it every day for lunch this week and it is so satisfying and tasty, I seriously CANNOT get over it. The honey dijon dressing is insane. I’m obsessed. Thanks for creating a salad I actually look forward to eating!
