California Goddess Cobb Salad

California Goddess Cobb Salad

I’ll eat anything with the name “goddess” in it.

It just makes me feel special and like the universe knows what to feed me… Totally joking! Although, sometimes it’s nice to dream.   

It’s really like an edible piece of art with it’s symmetrically arranged veggies and protein. A masterpiece to behold!

But don’t let that scare you off because it’s not all that difficult to assemble. No Van Gogh skills needed here!  

Just a few preparations before hand, like quick-grilling the asparagus and frying up the bacon. But, it’s totally worth it! I served mine family-style and in larger portions, but feel free to turn this into a chop style salad if that’s what suits your fancy. It all tastes the same!

I made my own Goddess Dressing because it’s easy and tastes SO fresh… trust me, it’s worth the extra five minutes.

Herbs

 

Salad Greens and seasoning in food processor

Add all the ingredients in a bowl and vigorously whisk until combined. I used a food processor for mine, but either method works great. You can make this a day ahead of time to allow the flavors to deepen.

Yum!

Leafy Greens

Start with a fresh base of field greens on a large platter. I bought mine at my local Farmer’s Market over the weekend!

California Asparagus

California Avocados

Next, I added a generous portion of crispy bacon and grilled asparagus.

Next came the sliced avocado and chunky chopped radish; don’t you love the purple variety?

Finally, a layer of hot-house tomatoes and hard-boiled egg wedges are added to the top. I deliberately left a portion of the salad greens exposed for a convenient starting point once you start serving this salad to your guests.

To top it all off, I added a generous sprinkling of fresh blue cheese.  

Total YumFest!

I think it’s the perfect salad to serve to all the goddess mamas this weekend for Mother’s Day.
