Keto Cobb Salad Ingredients
For the preparation of this super tasty keto cobb salad, you will need the following ingredients:
- Extra virgin olive oil cooking spray;
- 100 g of ham;
- 4 cherry tomatoes;
- 30 g of blue cheese;
- 2 hard-boiled eggs;
- 2 cups of.. romaine lettuce (chopped);
- 1/2 of diced avocado;
- 2 slices of turkey bacon.
Firstly, hard boil the eggs (you can use, whether a pre-programmed steamer or a standard method, but it has to be hard-boiled). Then slice the ham into cubes (0.5 x 0.5 inches) and heat them in a non-stick skillet previously sprayed with extra virgin olive oil for 3–5 minutes. The eggs should be finished within 10 minutes, so when done slice them too. Next, put the romaine lettuce on the bottom of the bowl. Put halved cherry tomatoes, avocados, blue cheese, ham, eggs and turkey bacon in the row over the lettuce. At the end, spray with some dressing. Here’s a recipe for my personal favorite dressing, but you may experiment a little bit if you like:
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil;
- 1 organic apple cider vinegar;
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice;
- 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard;
- A little bit of garlic (optional);
- Salt and pepper.
Put all ingredients into a small bowl and mix until then come together. Spray over the salad and serve.
