The last live Seinfeld episode aired 18 years ago, yet I think about that show almost daily. I constantly see or hear something that will remind me of an old episode. When I see a Penske truck: I think of the Penske file.
Someone winks, I think of George with the grapefruit in his eye. I hear mulligatawny; I think of the soup man. I see a ruffled shirt and I think of the puffy shirt episode, or I hear big salad, I think of Elaine. Clearly, I’ve seen way too many Seinfeld episodes!
Let’s go back to that big salad. That’s what I think of when I hear Cobb salad. Cobb salads are loaded with all kinds of good things like ham, chicken, hard-boiled eggs, bacon, cheese, avocados, tomatoes, and of course a heaping pile of lettuce. In other words, Cobb is a very, very big salad.
While we all love a good salad, not everyone wants to eat a BIG salad and sometimes you need to take things on the go. Which is why I came up with this simple, yet manageable Cobb salad wrap.
I streamlined the flavors of the classic salad and surrounded those flavors with an herb-flavored wrap. These sandwiches are filled with lettuce, shredded chicken, bacon, hard boiled eggs, blue cheese, tomatoes and avocados; you see - all the necessary elements are present in this easy to throw together sandwich.
I also added French fried onions; they add flavor and texture, plus they are just fun to eat. I then drizzled each sandwich with a simple balsamic dressing before rolling them all up.
These wraps are a delicious and portable way to enjoy a “big” Cobb salad. They are filling and satisfying too! It was so easy turning that “big salad” into a good sandwich; maybe I can do the same with the mulligatawny soup
