A big, gorgeous salad makes a perfect summertime meal. In order to get proper nutrition (and to make sure you aren't hungry an hour later) you will want to make sure your salad has a good balance of veggies, protein and healthy fats. This Vegan Cobb is the simple and perfect option!
I've replaced the unhealthy fats and protein that are commonly found in a traditional Cobb with healthier, plant based options making for a delicious and beautiful looking salad.
Healthy fats are so important to include when eating raw veggies. They help your body digest and better absorb the vegetable's vitamins and nutrients. Read more on the benefits of healthy fats and some great options to try: The Skinny on Healthy Fats
So why not do a little chopping tonight and make this super healthy meal...
Honey Mustard Dressing
If you don't enjoy Honey Mustard Dressing feel free to opt it out with another dressing of your choice or try this simple Healthy Herb Vinaigrette.
Leftovers of this salad will keep well in the fridge in an airtight container undressed and minus the chopped avocado.
If you want to make this salad ahead of time you can chop the avocado and sprinkle it with lemon juice to keep it from going brown and store it in a separate container until ready to serve.
Add in some additional protein and healthy fats by topping it with hemp, pumpkin or chia seeds before serving.
Combine all the salad ingredients in rows on a serving platter or shallow bowl.
Whisk together all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle the salad with dressing when ready to serve.
