Atkins Induction Dinner - Day 12 (Chicken and Sausage Cobb Salad)

Chicken and Sausage Cobb Salad with Balsamic Dressing
We enjoyed another salad last night, just so we can prove to all the haters that Atkins Induction is filled with salads! Salads, salads, salads! (Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!) NOT! You can eat your 12-15g of Net Carbohydrate Foundation Vegetables any way you want them: as salads, as raw veggies, as cooked veggies! Just make sure you eat ‘em each day!

A big ol' Jethro Bodine-sized Chicken and Sausage Cobb Salad
But, if Atkins Induction was filled with salad after salad after salad, it should be filled with this Chicken and Sausage Cobb Salad (or maybe my Big Mac Salad). Cuz it’s just that good! And easy too!

If you can cut up veggies, you can make this big ol’ Jethro Bodine salad. No time to cut veggies? Then buy, pre-chopped veggies at the market. No time to cook chicken? Buy a rotisserie chicken or rotisserie chicken breast meat at Costco. Heck, now you can even buy hard boiled eggs!

This Chicken Sausage Cobb Salad will satisfy you like no other and you won’t even realize you’re eating chicken sausages! Because this is one of my FD (Fast Day) rotations (not part of Atkins Induction), I made homemade lite Italian Salad Dressing, but use the full-fat stuff if you are doing regular induction. Fats help you absorb the eleventy billion vitamins and minerals you’re gonna get from eating this salad.
