Default Summer Cobb Salad Any Way You Like It

We have a local restaurant that makes a tasty and unusual Cobb Salad. It's not the typical Cobb, with bacon and blue cheese. They put in all kinds of goodies and it's fun to eat because you fell like you're finding a hidden treasure when your fork hits something unusual and yummy. I try to replicate it at home, but there's, frankly, is the best. (Probably because I don't have to make it myself.)

When I make mine, I just go through the fridge and cupboard and see what I can find. It's different each time I make it. Sometimes there's capers, roasted eggplant, hearts of palm, tofu, mushrooms, nuts, almond cheese, raisins, shrimp, salmon, pineapple, lentils...the list goes on and on...whatever I can find that day. It takes some labor to make, but it's always a huge hit with the fam.

Wow!!! Only thing left off that list is the kitchen sink😄😄😄😄. Sounds like a good salad to make now that the summer veggies will be coming in. Now I know what to do with these veggies, etc. I don’t grow them myself but there’s a great farm stand nearby who I hope will have some wonderful goodies. Thanks so much Tropit for all your suggestions. Niw - who can I get to make me kne🤭🤭😃😃😃

I live on salads, I use all different types of lettuce and everything goes in it. I have a bunch of little containers, I put my salad fixings in them. It's my way of food prep so I can see with a quick glance what I have and I can throw in what appeals to me that night.

I think that I'm going to make this for my, "ladies who lunch" get-together. I'l bake up some crusty bread and make some "horses' dovers" to go with it. My dau works for a vineyard, so I'm all set for wine. I also have espresso for afterwards.

Officially joining your "ladies". Can even wear gloves if necessary! That lunch sounds like a dream! Enjoy!
