This recipe was given to me by a client with the request to make it CARE balanced. This version is slightly changed from Elise Bauer’s post on in which she attempted to recreate the “Anti-Cobb” salad from the Hard Rock Café in D.C. I like this recipe because it reflects the original spirit of the Cobb salad which was to make a satisfying salad-based meal with what you have left-over in the fridge. I adapted Elise’s recipe by simply further balancing the macros, particularly carbohydrate by eliminating the mango. But all credit here goes to The Hard Rock Café and Elise Bauer!

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1x


  • 3 cups earthbound farm organic power greens
  • 1 tablespoon salad dressing (your choice, do practice label reading for quality)
  • 2 ounces COOKED chicken breast, cubed (left-over grilled or rotisserie works great)
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced (1/4 = 4 tablespoons)
  • 1 small green apple, (2″ dia.) sliced
  • 2 tablespoon dried cranberries


  1. Place greens in a large bowl.
  2. Add dressing and toss to coat well.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and enjoy.


  • A quick and simple vinaigrette to use as the dressing could be made at home by whisking 1-2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar with 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil.
  • Do check out the original recipe and other fun ideas on
  • In CARE, we look at existing recipes like these and the arugula salad I shared from; we all now have online access to so many wonderful, creative, and delicious ideas! Cooking at home truly never needs to be boring (or hard)!
