Cobb Salad

Cobb salad is great for making ahead, and with such flavour-packed ingredients, very little seasoning is required. Plus, it’s easy to adjust the ingredients to what you have on hand and what your family loves. For a dairy-free version, swap out the blue cheese for chopped mushrooms, almonds or pistachios.
