Asian Style Cobb Salad Whole-30 Adapted

I made this yesterday twice-once for me and once for my oldest who came home from working out starving. And then I made it again today. It is SO SO good. I adapted it from this recipe-the dressing calls for sugar and that is obviously not Whole30 approved so I put 1 TBS OJ in it's place. I also used a fresh Clementine instead of canned and used ground ginger instead of fresh. It is delicious and so filling. It says it makes four servings-well I ate the whole thing myself and maybe used a little less Romaine.

Whole60 ends today, Whole90 starts tomorrow! I've decided to try some new things every week so I don't get bored. This salad is one of them, and I have a few more that look great.

Happy March!

  1. That looks delicious! Way to go on whole60! We did it last year and a few of our kids have done it as well. Isn't it weird how the food we eat affects us? Scary!

    I also wanted to thank you of the book recommendation "A Spoonful of Sugar". I LOVED it!

  2. Thank you for this recipe suggestion and for your detailed Whole30 post. I love your approach so much. I completed the Whole30 last summer and am starting a new round of Whole30 this month to clean up some of the bad habits that have slipped in since my first go. I am going to incorporate many of your tips this time around. Thank you!

  3. Congrats on 60! You are amazing. The salad looks fantastic. I do think variety is key! Last week I tried a chicken enchilada casserole over cauliflower rice. Very good! Since I am post Whole30 I added beans in (for the first time in 6+ months) and didn't really enjoy them - or shall I say my stomach didn't! Yesterday I made a roasting chicken in the slow cooker. It is amazingly tender and I save the droppings as chicken broth. Leftovers were used to make a chicken salad with walnuts and celery and homemade mayo. Yum!

  4. I have been wanting to do whole30 but how do you live without dairy? i cannot fathom black coffee. You mud think it is worth it since you have been doing it for so little long. Maybe I just need to give up coffee. I actually think that would be easier.

    1. Hi Andrea! Sorry it took so long to answer-forget about this post! I don't drink coffee and never have-I don't know how I avoided it but just never really tried it and figured I didn't need to start another food habit (maybe I should have and dropped the cookie, candy, icecream habits?). You can buy cans of coconut milk-I use it to make ranch dressing etc. You have to shake it up REALLY good before opening but it is super creamy and thick. I little would go a long way! I know whole30 has rules about what you can add to coffee so I'd check there first, but I coconut milk is allowed!

  5. Andrea, (sorry to butt in on your question!) I use coconut cream whenever I do a whole30, and although it took a little while to get used to, I now use it in my coffee almost all the time! With four little ones, I need my shot of energy in the morning! :)

    1. I don't think i have heard on that. Thanks for chiming in. I tried almond milk, my daughter drinks it, but I couldn't do it. Someone recommended coconut oil but that was weird how it separates. It is something I think I need to learn to cut. When I really looked at the calories, I was consuming 80 per cup! I have 3 cups a day!

  6. What a great salad, thank you for sharing, Sarah. Some salmon will be good in here too instead of the chicken, I imagine.
