This HUGE salad was our lunch a couple of weeks ago, and we have been so flat out creating videos, expanding our team and training some amazing people, that I haven’t had the chance to sit down and share anything properly! This week however, that’s all changing! I hope you’re as excited as I am!

The SKINNY Chicken Caesar Salad from a couple of years ago is STILL making the rounds on the internet, and I was showing our new team members some of the recipes I’ve been dreaming of turning into video. THAT salad was one of them. But THEN, this Cobb salad jumped out at me and I thought WHAT-IF-I-MERGE-BOTH-INTO-ONE? WHAT-WOULD-HAPPEN?

Seasoning the chicken in lemon and oregano for some epic Greek flavours, then grilling said chicken for a charcoal, barbecued flavour, kicks it all off. Adding some perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs, croutons, tomatoes, avocados, parmesan. Crispy bacon compliments the chicken so much so that you don’t even know which way to direct your fork! BUT THEN comes the dressing. Or should I say, THE DRESSING.

THIS caesar dressing is one of the best caesar salad dressings you will ever try. I use a mixture of Greek yogurt and mayo instead if using only mayo, to help cut down on the calories situation. I figure, the more calories saved in the dressing, the more bacon and avocado and egg you can enjoy.

Avocados, like olives, are high in monounsaturated fats and high in calories. On the other hand, it is very rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and full of various plant nutrients that are beneficial to health.
Creamy pulp is a very rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids, such as: oleic acid and palmitoleic acid; as well as omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid linoleic acid. Scientific research has shown that the Mediterranean diet, which is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, helps reduce the level of bad LDL cholesterol in the blood, but also increases the beneficial HDL cholesterol, thus preventing the occurrence of heart disease and stroke, by maintaining healthy blood lipid levels.
Avocado is a very good source of soluble and insoluble fiber. 100 grams of avocado contains 6.7 grams or about 18 percent of the daily recommended dose. Fiber helps lower blood cholesterol and prevents constipation.
In addition, avocados, like dates, contain high concentrations of tannins. Tannin is a polyphenolic compound that has long been considered an anti-nutrient agent (a substance that interferes with the normal absorption of nutrients), and is now known to have beneficial anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-ulcer properties.
Avocado meat contains a number of beneficial flavonoid, polyphenolic antioxidants, such as cryptoxanthin, lutein, zeaxanthin, beta and alpha carotene, but in small amounts. Together, these compounds serve as protection against oxygen free radicals and reactive oxygen species, which play a major role in the aging process and the development of many diseases.
Avocados also contain solid amounts of vitamins. Vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin K are particularly concentrated in the creamy pulp.
Avocados are also a great source of minerals, such as iron, copper, magnesium and manganese. Magnesium is essential for strengthening bones and plays a protective role when it comes to cardiovascular health. Manganese is used in the body as a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutas. Iron and copper are essential for the production of red blood cells.
Fresh avocados are a very rich source of potassium.
