Thai Cobb Salad

Thai Cobb Salad
I know everyone goes crazy for comfort foods at this time of year, but there are only so many heavy meals I can take before I need to break it up a little bit. Although this Thai Cobb salad looks like it belongs on the table sometime in July, you won’t be disappointed to eat it between a night of soup and chicken pot pie.

Vegetarians can swap sliced hardboiled eggs for the chicken and throw some extra peanuts on top. The rainbow of colors in this salad makes it almost too pretty to eat, but you’ll be sold after one bite! A coconut milk dressing is just the creamy touch this bright, crunchy salad needs. Take a break from the typical seasonal foods and change things up with this!
