Cobb Salad with Dairy-Free Ranch


2012/05/07 by nikkiledford

This is an delicious salad with an even more amazing dressing! I use this as an alternative creamy dressing for cobb salad, coleslaw, caesar salad, etc. It’s also a great dip for kabob meat or fresh veggies.

Cobb to Go!

Cobb Salad

1 bunch of organic romaine
1 chicken breast, cooked and diced
4 slices of bacon, cooked and diced
2 eggs, sliced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 cucumber, diced
1/2 avocado, diced

  1. Wash and chop the romaine into bite size pieces.
  2. Spilt romaine between two bowls.
  3. Divide other toppings between the two bowls.
  4. Toss with the dressing.

Dairy Free Ranch Dressing

2 c. raw cashews
2 c. water
Juice of 1 lemon (add zest if you think it’s awesome… like me!)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
sea salt
2-3 tbsp. organic rice vinegar
1/4 c. chopped parsley

  1. In a blender, add cashews and water.
  2. Add lemon, garlic, onion, sea salt, and pepper. Blend
  3. Add rice vinegar. Blend.
  4. Add parsley and briefly blend until just combined. Don’t blend in parsley too much or the dressing will turn green.

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
