Chicken Cobb Salad

Chicken Cobb Salad

Happy June! Summer is finally here and now it’s time for some really light but delicious meals. You don’t want a super heavy dish when it’s hot outside so this Chicken Cobb Salad is the perfect thing. The chicken and egg packs it full of protein without weighing you down and the avocado gives you a boost of healthy fat along with the vegetables giving you the freshness you crave.

This is definitely a meal you will want to eat every day!  Continue reading “Chicken Cobb Salad”
