Kinda-Close Cobb Salad

Salads are the easiest way to eat up your produce, but it’s easy for them to become uninspired. Our Kinda-Close Cobb Salad blends local and sustainably sourced ingredients for a crunchy salad that’s satisfying and will keep you full until dinner. Because you can’t go wrong with a salad that tosses fresh vegetables with hearty proteins! (Serves 4)


  • 1 Lettuce, washed and de-stemmed
  • ½  lb tomatoes, washed, quartered, and sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 avocado, cleaned, quartered, and sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1-2 carrots, cleaned, peeled, and sliced into thin half-moon pieces
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • ½ c. olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced small
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)
  • Pinch of honey or sugar
  • 2-4 eggs, hard-boiled and sliced into bite-sized pieces (optional)
  • 1 lb chicken breast, cooked and sliced thin (optional)
  • 2-inch baguette, sliced ¼ inch thin (easiest when frozen slightly) (optional)


  1. (Optional) Place eggs in a small pot and cover with cold water, about an inch over. 
    1. Cover and boil 8-10 minutes, then let sit in an ice bath until ready to peel. 
    2. Cook chicken, if desired.
    3. If also desired, drizzle thin baguette slices with olive oil and a pinch of salt and cook 4-5 minutes to make homemade croutons!
  2. To make dressing, mix lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic, and mustard, if using, in a small bowl. 
  3. Using a whisk, drizzle olive oil in, slowly, until the dressing has slightly thickened and doesn’t split apart. 
  4. Add honey or sugar to taste. (Unless you’re using mustard, it will break!)
  5. Clean and cut veggies, then mix lettuce and carrots in a large salad bowl. 
  6. Drizzle with dressing until lightly coated.
  7. Finish with rest of toppings and drizzle with dressing as desired.
