Potato Cobb Salad

Recipe by ~SarahBeth~

From Southern Living. This has a beautiful presentation! I sometimes scale the amounts way back to serve just me :) Great lunch salad too! I love having the starchy carbs in there! I also use just plain old red potatoes for this a lot of the time. Also, I usually cube potatoes before boiling. Also, I very rarely peel them because I love all the nutrients in the peel! Since I don't like raw tomatoes, I will leave them out. Sometimes I will sub sun-dried in their place! Prep-time does not include cooling time for potatoes, and cook time is assembly time.

I scaled this down to feed two of us. A really great salad. First time trying potatoes this way and the flavor was excellent. I used feta cheese instead of blue and didnt use bacon, but I did have some ham I wanted to use up and it worked out great. I put it on a bed of romaine and iceburg lettuce, and this made for a very filling salad. Such a nice colorful salad too, I love cobb salads for this reason. Thanks for sharing SaraBeth
