We had a fantastic weekend and worked outside all Saturday. One of my best tips is to prepare dinner before I step outdoors. When you come indoors all dirty, worn out or just plain old tired because you are just plain and old… dinner is already done. During the colder months, I always have a crock pot full of something for dinner. But during the warmer months, a salad is a wonderful dinner.
A Cobb Salad is so filling and delicious. I love arranging the platter.
I don't follow any Cobb Salad hard and fast rules... but this salad has bacon, roasted turkey, ham, avocados, pecan, cucumbers, celery, red onions, scallions, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs. You can make it as big or little as you need.
Mixed with my homemade ranch dressing…
A complete hit with hubby and any child that may be driving by and hungry.
Homemade Ranch Dressing
