Low Carb Cobb Salad
The contrast between crunchy romaine, crispy bacon, creamy blue cheese and avocado, and a delicious sweet heat dressing in this Low Carb Cobb Salad is enough to swoon over. The dressing is the star of the show, bringing everything together with a zippy, refreshing punch. If blue cheese is not your thing, feel free to substitute a nice salty feta.
