Wedge Cobb Salad

New spin on Cobb Salads…serve it wedge style!

I love fresh salads during the summer, especially when some, or all of the ingredients are coming out of my garden. (Or down the street from the local farmer’s market!) There’s just something primitive about eating foods that you grew, or you know who grew them, and where they were grown. There’s a comfort to this primitive feeling.

And not to mention, that there is so much produce that is in peak season and you don’t have to spend an arm and leg for tomatoes, cucumbers and lettuce!

This Cobb salad is a total mix n match…just pile on whatever you have on hand. And make this your new favorite way to serve salads this summer!

Hope you get a chance to try this wedge cobb salad this summer!
