A healthy chicken Cobb salad with all the classic toppings: chicken, bacon, avocado, jammy eggs, and topped with ranch dressing. Whole30, paleo, and dairy free.
Bring 8 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan and add 1-2 tablespoons vinegar of choice. Gently lower eggs into the water and boil 8 minutes for medium-set yolks. Immediately drain the boiling water after 8 minutes and transfer eggs to an ice water bath. Let sit 5-10 minutes or until chilled. Drain the eggs and return to an empty pan or bowl. Jiggle and bounce the eggs against one another in the pan until the shells are very broken, and feel almost like mesh. Peel under running water and cut in half lengthwise.
Arrange lettuce of choice on a large plate or platter. Sprinkle salt and freshly ground pepper over then drizzle with about half of ranch. Arrange remaining toppings over in desired design. Top with remaining ranch dressing and garnish with green onions.
Make sure your ranch dressing is Whole30 compliant, if on Whole30. My favorite recipe is my Whole30 Dump Ranch Dressing. For a bottled Whole30 ranch dressing, try Primal Kitchen Ranch Dressing. It's dairy-free and made with avocado oil. Totally Whole30 compliant!
