Salads are my thing, I actually crave them. Crazy, I know. I love to experiment with different dressings, giving the same old classic salads a new depth of flavor. My favorite of the moment is Dill Vinaigrette. My, my so good! I first came across this at my local farm store, where I like to get lunch at. I stepped out of the box and tried a new dressing and salad, it was a big day. I had never thought to use dill in a dressing; honestly I thought dill was for pickles. Well I was pleasantly surprised and that Dill Vinaigrette became my new favorite. I was now determined to create my own. So last week I used the Dill Vinaigrette with a classic cobb minus bacon and cheese. Of course you can add them to your salad though. It was Delicious; the Dill really gave a new flavor to my classic salad. Here’s what I came up with…
Classic Cobb Salad
• 1 head/heart Romaine Lettuce (Chopped)
• 5 Cherry tomatoes (halved)
• ½ Bell pepper (red, orange, or yellow) (diced)
• 2 Slices of Red Onion (quartered)
• ½ Avocado (Sliced)
• 1 hard-boiled Egg (peeled and cut to your liking)
Throw in all in a bowl and then pour dressing on top and enjoy!
Note: Add bacon and cheese if you’d like.
• ¼ cup Olive Oil
• 2 TBSP Red or White Wine Vinegar
• 1 ½ tsp Honey
• ¾ tsp Dried Dill Weed
• 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
• 1/8 tsp Garlic Powder
• 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
Place in blender, ninja, or food processor…whatever you’ve got and blend together and then cover and let in chill in fridge for about 20 minutes.
Enjoy this Healthy and Flavorful Classic! Until next time…
