How to make vegetarian cobb egg salad

Print this recipe
A classic Cobb salad is kind of a meat lover’s dream salad, loaded with diced ham and bacon, but with a few twists, it can make a surprisingly satisfying and delicious vegetarian salad. The recipe below gets smokiness from smoked almonds instead of bacon. An assortment of veggies, hard-boiled eggs, salty blue cheese,and a tangy honey-Dijon vinaigrette turn it into a meal.
I love serving a composed salad for a fancy lunch or as an entrée for a warm summer evening. This one is full of color, texture, an flavor – all the things you hope for in a salad-centric meal. Some crusty bread is all you need to round it out.
