This Vegetarian Cobb Salad is loaded with lots of protein and vegetables to keep you feeling happy, healthy and full!


 I’ve developed this terrible habit where I can’t just eat a regular garden salad anymore.  I feel the need to put like 1,000 different ingredients into the salad to make it into a salad that I could eat for a meal.  I think I just love salads so much that I need to come up with an excuse to eat them for lunch and dinner!

Now, I know you may be thinking that this doesn’t really look like a cobb salad.  But, it does have hard boiled eggs in it and I really couldn’t think of anything else to call this salad.  I guess I could have gone with Hard Boiled Egg, White Bean and Sweet Potato Salad but that’s just too wordy!


This Vegetarian Cobb Salad is really hearty and filling.  You get some protein from the eggs and white beans, your minerals from the pepitas and some sweetness and tartness from the sweet potato and dried cranberries.  There’s not really much more you could ask for in a salad!  It’s also a great salad that you can make ahead and take for lunches all week!

    I’m the same way! I feel like a regular ‘ole salad is just a little plain, so I like to jazz it up with whatever ingredients I have on hand…makes it more fun! This version looks wonderful, Izzy! I’m loving the sweet potatoes in here. Gives it such a pretty pop of color and flavor! I could definitely go for this salad for lunch or dinner today!

    Mmm I love a big, good salad full of deliciousness, and that’s just what this is! It looks fantastic – love the sweet potatoes and cranberries in there. Definitely giving this a try!

    It looks like a chopped salad to me, and it’s beautiful! Salads are more interesting when there are a lot of different ingredients, so I’m right there with ya. I wish this was my dinner tonight!

    I’ve been getting “weird” with salads, too. One of my favorite ones to throw together includes leftover roasted sweet potato chunks, so you know this one is calling my name! I’ve been loving dried cranberries, too. Healthy but super satisfying!

    I can’t do plain old garden salads either, this girl needs all the toppings! This cobb salad is loaded up with all my faves ( roasted sweet taters, I’m looking at you), while being heavy on the protein and fiber! Winning :)
