I honestly do not mind spending money on a nice meal, but I am not exaggerating when I tell you that I almost passed away when I got the bill at Beverly Hills hotel and my salad was $45 😂 I mean don’t get me wrong, the McCarthy salad there is AMAZING, but I just have a hard time spending money on meals I can easily make at home.
Also, if you’re wondering why it’s so expensive it’s because the Beverly Hills Hotel is just a boujey af hot spot that celebrities frequent that’s really it 🤷🏻♀️ Cute for photos, but I say grab a cocktail then head home and make the salad yourself! Nicole (@nobread) and I made sure this recipe was spot on with the real thing, hope you enjoy!!! xx
Beverly Hills Cobb Salad
- 1 cup romaine chopped
- 1 cup iceberg chopped
- 1/2 cup grilled chicken diced
- 1/4 cup tomato cored and diced
- 1/2 cup roasted red beets diced (I get them pre-roasted at Trader Joe’s or Sprouts)
- 1/2 cup hard boiled eggs diced (about 1 egg)
- 1/4 cup bacon diced
- 1/4 cup sharp cheddar cheese diced
- 1/2 avocado
- Kosher salt & pepper to serve
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 clove of garlic roasted
- 1 tsp coconut sugar or maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp Dijon mustard
- Kosher salt & pepper
To roast the garlic for the dressing, peel the cloves and drizzle with olive oil in tin foil. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes until soft.
Assemble your salad as shown. Whisk or blend together dressing ingredients and pour over your salad. Top with kosher salt and pepper.
Chopping everything takes some time so I suggest at least doubling the recipe to make it worth your while! I prepped everything and stored it separately for lunches for the whole week!
