Mediterranean Cobb Salad






Mediterranean Cobb Salad




Mediterranean flavors and ingredients infused in this easy, healthy, accidentally vegetarian Cobb salad that’s ready in 10 minutes. Save time and use the olive bar and salad bar at the grocery store for some of the ingredients. Briney feta, juicy cucumbers, Kalamata olives, red peppers, and artichoke hearts over a bed of Romaine. Top with an easy, shake-together, super flavorful yet light vinaigrette.
