It is pretty obvious how much I like salads! They are versatile and easy to put together which makes it a week night staple for my family. My kids are not quite salad eaters yet but they will always eat the protein and the veggies so there I do not end up making multiple meals!
For my FASTer Way to Fat Loss participants, this is a perfect Low Carb meal!!
This classic Cobb salad with the dressing is something you will want to make over and over! It's a mouthful of flavors, textures and just plain deliciousness.
This bacon sea salt really adds a lot to this salad. A little goes a long way and will be your new favorite salt!
