Cobb Salad Recipe

I’m on big salad kick lately. Maybe it’s because it’s so hot out, I just don’t feel like eating anything else. Or maybe it’s because I’ve found such awesome low calorie salad recipes lately that I actually ENJOY eating it! Either way, I’m all about the greens. And I’ve recently come across this amazingly good low calorie Cobb Salad Recipe. Each serving has just a 5 Points, which is a phenomenal count, considering that a traditional cobb salad recipe can clock in at well over 20 Weight Watchers Points per serving…SCARY! So this lighter version is a real treat. And it still has all of the yummy goodness that makes a cobb salad tasty! Bacon, blue cheese, egg…mmmmm! If you love cobb salads, then this low calorie recipe is a MUST try!

    Can you sub out the blue cheese for something like feta or cheddar for the same point value?

      Yes, you can substitute, just double-check the nutritional information to make sure the Points Plus value doesn’t change. It will most likely stay the same.

  2. So I just found your site today and am so stoked! I am back at WW after a three year hiatus, and am so excited about all of your recipes. Thanks for sharing. Do you ever tell your weight loss story on here?

    • Interesting question! No, I have not yet, because I am still on my weight loss journey. I went through a pregnancy, so I was unable to diet at that time, but in order to keep my weight gain to a minimal, my Dr. allowed me to follow the Weight Watchers program during my pregnancy. With added Weight Watchers Points though! :) But now that the baby is out, I'm back on the plan, and as soon as I reach my weight loss goal, I will be sure to share my story on here. Thanks for asking!
