Green Goddess Cobb Salad

Discovering the Green Goddess Delight

As a self-proclaimed food enthusiast, I’m constantly on the hunt for new and exciting dishes to try. Recently, while scrolling through the Panera Bread app, I stumbled upon a salad that immediately caught my eye – the Green Goddess Cobb Salad. The description had me hooked: a vibrant blend of greens, protein-packed chicken, crispy bacon, creamy avocado, and a tantalizing green goddess dressing. I couldn’t resist the urge to try this masterpiece.

However, when I dug deeper into the ingredient list, I noticed a few items that made me pause. Things like rice starch, dextrose, and canola oil – not exactly the pure, nourishing ingredients I prefer to use in my own cooking. That’s when I knew I had to take matters into my own hands and create a homemade version that captured all the flavors I craved, but with a healthier, more wholesome twist.

Crafting the Perfect Green Goddess Cobb Salad

After some research and experimenting in the kitchen, I’m thrilled to present my version of the Panera Green Goddess Cobb Salad. This salad is a true culinary masterpiece, packed with vibrant greens, juicy chicken, crispy bacon, creamy avocado, and a dazzling green goddess dressing that will have your taste buds doing a happy dance.

To start, I knew I wanted to create a dressing that was just as delicious as the one from Panera, but without all the unnecessary additives. After a bit of trial and error, I landed on a winning combination of fresh herbs, tangy yogurt, olive oil, and a touch of white wine vinegar. The result is a creamy, flavor-packed dressing that serves as the perfect complement to the other salad components.

Next, I carefully selected the perfect blend of greens. Rather than relying solely on romaine or mixed greens, I opted for a combination of romaine, arugula, and baby kale. This trio provides a delightful mix of textures and flavors, keeping the salad fresh, crisp, and endlessly interesting with each bite.

As for the toppings, I went all out. Juicy, antibiotic-free chicken, crispy Applewood smoked bacon, cage-free hard-boiled eggs, tangy feta cheese, and ripe, juicy cherry tomatoes. And of course, I couldn’t forget the star of the show – creamy, nutrient-dense avocado. Each element works in perfect harmony to create a salad that is not only visually stunning but also supremely satisfying.

A Salad That’s Good for the Body and Soul

But this Green Goddess Cobb Salad isn’t just a feast for the senses – it’s also a nourishing and health-conscious meal that will leave you feeling energized and content.

And the best part? This salad is not only gluten-free, paleo, and Whole30 compliant, but it’s also keto-friendly.
