Southwestern Cobb Salad with Easy Yogurt Ranch Dressing

April 27, 2018

“I don’t like tomatoes!!” my 4 year old will remind me when he sees this salad. But it’s cool. Because my Southwestern Cobb Salad is one of those easy-to-customize dinners AND the leftover Yogurt Ranch goes into his lunchbox as a dip for carrots.

Basically I feel like the smartest woman on Earth anytime I’ve got this meal going on.

In fact, I recently added it to a meal plan meant to support a good night’s sleep.

What does a Cobb salad have to do with sleep?

I’m amazed time and time again how my clients’ sleep improves when they start eating more homecooked, unprocessed food. While so many Americans are taking sleeping pills to get their snooze on, I just have to say…

Food makes a HUGE difference! But be careful. This ranch dressing can be addictive 😉
