Steak Cobb Salad With Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

Steak Cobb Salad With Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

Cobb salad recipe and content provided by Brent Totty

Cobb salad is the salad even salad-haters like. Meat, egg, avocado, and bacon make it one of the heartiest salad recipes out there — thanks to all the fat. Unfortunately, most Cobb salads — loaded with nitrate-filled bacon, non-pasture-raised eggs, cheese, conventionally raised chicken, and canola-oil-filled dressings — contain the wrong type of fat to make it a truly healthful dish.

By being mindful of your ingredients, you can drastically upgrade your Cobb salad and make it Bulletproof. Using grass-fed beef instead of chicken, swapping cheese with cauliflower, and eliminating canola oil lowers inflammation, increases omega-3 fatty acids, and increases fiber. Salads also provide an incredible canvas for creativity, adding any side of vegetable, nut, protein and fat source can completely change the taste and feel of the dish you are having. Try adding diced sweet potatoes to this recipe for your next carbohydrate refeed meal.
