Hey Food Finders!
I LOVE Cobb Salad...the way the flavors of bacon, egg, chicken, avocado, and creamy blue cheese dressing all combine together for a taste extravaganza! It’s pure heaven if you ask me. We all know that salads sound healthy, but a loaded Cobb salad is not usually one of the good-guys when it comes to saturated fat and calories. Until NOW!
These Cobb Salad Skewers have all of the ingredients listed above but use healthier versions of the ingredients and the skewers make portion control a cinch! They are so colorful and fun to put together AND to eat! You will not miss the regular restaurant offering of this dish at all once you try this homemade version! These are also perfect for entertaining! Serve during a light brunch, lunch, or as an adorable appetizer!
¼ head of iceberg lettuce, chopped in cubes
3 oz. chicken breast, cooked & cubed
¼ red onion, cubed
5 cherry tomatoes
1 slices, Al Fresco Chicken Bacon, cut into 5 squares
¼ avocado, cubed
2 hard boiled eggs, quartered carefully so the yolk doesn’t fall apart
¼ cup Wallaby nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp. Fat free sour cream
1 Tbsp. milk (any kind)
2 Tbsp. blue cheese crumbles
1 tsp lemon juice
¼ tsp of each: garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper
Optional Garnish: 1 slice minced chicken bacon (add 1 SP and 15 calories)
Optional Garnish: 1 Tbsp blue cheese crumbles (add 1 SP and 49 calories)
Using 5 skewers, assemble the salad by pushing the sharp end of the skewer through one piece of each of the following: lettuce, chicken, red onion, cherry tomato, bacon, avocado, hard boiled egg, and another cube of chicken. Assemble all skewers in this way.
To make the dressing, mix the Greek yogurt, sour cream, milk, lemon juice, blue cheese crumbles and spices together in a small bowl. Use a fork to mash the blue cheese crumbles into the dressing until it’s all blended to the consistency you like. Drizzle over the skewers.
1 Serving (without dressing) = 5 Skewers
1 Serving of Blue Cheese Dressing = 2 Tbsp.
