Cobb Salad

Another entree salad this week.

I mentioned two weeks ago that I had a cobb salad (minus the bacon) during the Drinking Liberally happy hour held that week at Capital City Brewing Company in Arlington, Virginia.

I decided to try making a cobb salad, or at least my version of a cobb salad, for dinner last night.

For a bacon substitute, I cut Lightlife brand's smokey tempeh strips into small pieces and sauteed them in some canola oil until they were crispy around the edges.

I arranged the defrosted sweet corn, "bacon" bits, chopped boiled eggs, diced tomatoes, diced avocados, black olives, and some crumbled blue cheese on top of a bed of romaine lettuce that I had tossed in some store-bought blue cheese dressing.

Easy. Filling. And very delicious!

I love he look of that salad. It just seems perfect these days where the heat saps the life right out of you.

Okay. Sign me up!
