cobb egg salad.

New favorite meal alert!

It’s quite possible that this salad was MADE for me.  Because essentially you’re using all of the components of a cobb salad, and mixing it into an old school… wait for it… EGG SALAD!

This is another one of those easy lunches I was talking about earlier this week.  Another simple salad that is packed with SO much flavor.

As spring approaches – or my wishful thinking due to the 60+ degree weather we’ve experienced these past couple of days – I’m preparing myself with an abundance of recipes to use up all those hardboiled eggs I make for Easter.  And I make a lot.  Eggs are without a doubt the number one protein source we use in this family – so it’s no surprise that eggs would be the star of the show for one of the easy salads I’m whipping together.

The key to making this salad so simple is to not only have the eggs pre-boiled, but also to have the bacon cooked ahead of time.  Since I’ve lowered my carbohydrate intake, Audrey and I have been eating bacon and eggs for breakfast almost every morning.  Unfortunately, cooking bacon every morning makes getting ready quickly almost impossible – so I’ve been cooking up all the bacon I purchase at the beginning of the week, allowing me to just grab pieces as needed.

Like for this salad.

Because a cobb salad isn’t a cobb salad without bacon.  Obviously.

The rest of the ingredients are easily diced, allowing you to  make the entire salad in about 5 minutes.

Another quick and easy lunch for the win.

Also, the way you serve it is pretty endless, too.  I piled mine high on a bed of mixed greens, but you can totally serve it with crackers.  Or as a sandwich.  Whatever floats your boat, really.
