Quick Cobb Salad

This salad is quick and easy to put together, as long as you are willing to do a little work in the beginning.

To make this lunch quick and easy, you need to have grilled chicken stocked up in the freezer. Spend one day marinating a big batch of chicken breasts and then grill them. Flash freeze them on a cookie sheet once they are cool and then bag them individually and store them in the freezer. I use a vacuum sealer for each breast so that all the air is out and I don't get any freezer burn. 

When you go to use the frozen chicken, just pull out one of the packages the night before. Then it will be thawed in time for you to use for your salad at lunch. Easy way to add that grilled chicken to your lunch!

I also keep my salad topping already prepared and read to go in the fridge. So my eggs are already boiled, cucumbers, etc.

Add everything to the bowl and top with some dressing. I go with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a little salt & pepper, and some dried basil. Be careful with the dressing you pick. It can take a completely healthy salad and add tons of empty calories and fat.

Other good salad toppings: avocado, bacon, tomato, green onions, red onion, black beans, or even salsa as the dressing.
