Have you ever been to Disney World? Well, you might not know is that they can put together an amazing allergy-friendly vacation. And, while you’re there you need to visit the Brown Derby. I had the best cobb salad of my life there, which was also my first. The chef modified the meal to be free of all my allergies. So upon returning home, I set out to make a similar salad. I found dozens of Brown Derby Cobb Salad Recipes online, all of which varied a little. I mixed and matched, cut out allergens, and created my very own cobb salad!
One of the best parts about a cobb salad is that you can always change the ingredients. And, my personal favorite part about this cobb salad is that it can be easily placed in a jar! A healthy lunch alternative : )
Allergies: Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce hasn’t contained soy protein since 2011, but you should always check to be certain if you have a soy allergy.
- Mixed Greens: Iceberg Lettuce (½ head), Romaine Lettuce (½ head), Chicory (small bunch), and Watercress (½ bunch)
- Tomatoes (2 or more)
- Bacon (≈ 6 strips)
- Optional: Blue Cheese, Hard Boiled Egg, etc.
- 2 tbsp. Water
- 2 tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
- 1+ tbsp. Lemon Juice (Freshly Squeeze 1 Lemon)
- ½ tbsp. Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
- ½ tbsp. Salt
- 1 tsp. Minced Garlic (1 Clove)
- ¼ tsp. Sugar
- ¼ tsp. Ground Mustard
- 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
- ¼ to ⅓ cup Vegetable Oil
- Preheat the oven and cook your bacon and turkey. Once cooked, let them cool before crumbling and dicing them.
- Finely chop the greens and mix them together. Then cut, tomatoes, avocados, and any other fixings you’d like in your cobb salad. Place all the ingredients in lines on a plate.
- Mix all the dressing ingredients together.
- Place all your dry ingredients in a line on a plate/platter.
- Place the dressing in a bowl on the side. Pour on the salad once served.
