After London Cobb Salad

After coming home from a whirlwind trip to London Brian and I were FULL! We had spent a couple of days in London for the purpose of seeing Mel Brooks. Brian’s ultimate dream of meeting his inspiration was coming true. So I decided to make some of my dreams come true by spending our couple of days eating at any market we could find. We only sat down to dinner once out of the 3 nights we were there. I have no regrets, but once we got home we were feeling it. For our first night back we decided we wanted to undo some of the damage we did!

Sometimes salad doesn’t seem to be the most fulfilling choice but it was really the only thing we were in the mood for. I thought a Cobb Salad would be a great idea. This is not a traditional Cobb Salad but it was inspired by it!
