From your bariatric nutrition team

4 servings

This healthier version of a traditional Cobb Salad omits the bacon to decrease saturated fat and sodium but keeps the flavor and nutritional value high from lean protein, crisp vegetables, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat from avocado.

2 hardboiled eggs, cut in half

1 avocado, sliced

12 grape tomatoes, cut in half

1/4 cup corn kernels

1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled

4 cups chopped lettuce or assorted dark leafy greens

Salt and pepper to taste

  3. Grill chicken on both sides until internal temperature reaches 165°.
  4. Slice chicken breast.
